Oldies but goldies, today Metric is one of the pylons of the electro-indie scene. They were named “Mainstream” when the first band members joined to produce this new wave sound in 1998, so if go mainstream were their goal, they almost made it.
Their history as band is full of member, cities and band changes as well as self-realised content when this was almost madness. People say that constant change is key to success.
How fair would it be to talk about them with out showing their last album stuff? Maybe they went too overconfident with the time.
