Metric’s latest album, Synthetica, came out earlier this summer, and now that you've had a couple of months to absorb it on its own merits, the band has released a mini-documentary going behind the scenes of its production. Below you'll find an exclusive première of the first of four chapters, in which the band meets up in Toronto to record, before moving to NYC’s legendary Electric Lady studios to finish up.
