Metric – “The Governess” Video

Canadian alt-pop stars Metric released their Pagans In Vegas album a couple of months ago, and now they’ve followed up their video for “The Shade” with a new one for the strummy stomp “The Governess.” This one focuses exclusively on frontwoman Emily Haines. First, it shows her piloting an old convertible through the Nevada desert and rocking out outside a beat-up trailer. Then, we see her carrying a beat-up guitar case down the Las Vegas strip. It’s the sort of mythic Americana that only a foreigner would make. Lauren Graham — not the one from Gilmore Girls and Parenthood — directs. Watch it below.

Pagans In Vegas is out now on MMI.
