Listen! Metric – Youth Without Youth

Canadian indie darlings, Metric, are about to release the great named Synthetica on June 12. The first track we get to hear is Youth Without Youth, which you can listen to below. Synthetica follows up the highly successful previous album, Fantasies.

So how does Youth Without Youth sound? Fuzzy Muse-esque bass, big stomping intro, synths, and a chorus built more around the music than Emily Haines’ vocals (which are computerized at one part throughout the song). It sounds like Metric, yet it’s a definite change in their sound from Fantasies.
