It took a solitary excursion to Buenos Aires for Metric lead singer-songwriter Emily Haines to hammer out the material for the band’s fourth full-length, 2009’s Fantasies. After finding success with indie-rock super-band Broken Social Scene as well as her own solo efforts, like 2006’s well-received Knives Don’t Have Your Back, Toronto-based Haines holed up in the Argentine city to find inspiration. The resulting album honed in on Haines’ ability to turn out new-wave-inspired indie-pop stuffed with hooks that live on repeat in your head. It’s been followed by 2012’s Synthetica, a bifurcated album which features the haunting sonic landscapes that define the band’s catalogue in the first half, and slick and poppy glam experiments in the latter.
After more than a year away from Milwaukee (the group played the 2012 Rock The Green festival), Metric will play Turner Hall Friday, November 22. General admission tickets are $27, and go on sale Friday, September 13 at noon.
