Metric – “The Shade”

Metric have shared a new single called “The Shade,” their first new song since the release of Synthetica is 2012, outside of a demo that they shared at the end of last year. It sounds like a natural extension of that record — still a little more polished than their earlier work, but this is a band that’s gone to the same well for the past few albums and still managed to pull it off, so who can blame them for playing it a little safe? Emily Haines’ voice is still great at making things feel like they’re do-or-die, and “The Shade”‘s chorus of “I want it all” plays off of that nicely. The band promises that news about their next full-length is out later this year. Listen below.
