Metric, of Toronto.

Synth-pop band Metric was a staple of the "Modern Rock" station I listened to when I lived in Edmonton, and I always thought they kind of, uhhhh, sucked. A kitschy little act largely propelled by Emily Haines and  her too-cutesy vocals and her cute little behind in her tiny white shorts.

Then I left Edmonton, and didn't have much contact with Metric or any other "modern rock" for a while. Then a couple of years ago I stumbled onto Metric's 2012 "Synthetica" CD, and was completely blown away.   Emily had apparently gotten over her nose-candy problems and proceeded to create some great music.

Trivia: although Emily is as white as the driven snow, she's actually from New Delhi, India.

The late Lou Reed provided guest vocals on this song.

I think it's the piano on this track that seals it for me.
