Here's some happy news. After four long years, Canadian indie band Metric is back. Their new album Fantasies drops April 14 (although you can buy it via iTunes starting March 31) and they're going on tour to promote it. The first stop: Seattle's Showbox at the Market on June 4.
I've had Fantasies on repeat in my car's CD player for a couple days now. Emily Haines and crew sound lovely as usual with their trademark blend of indie-pop and new wave. Jonesing to have a listen? You can get a preview of the full album by visiting Metric's website. Enjoy!
