Metric is a Canadian new wave/indie rock band that was formed in 1998 in New York City, United States. They are currently based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The band consists of vocalist and keyboardist Emily Haines, guitarist James Shaw, bassist Josh Winstead, and drummer Joules Scott-Key. Their debut album, Grow Up and Blow Away, was recorded in 2001, but the official release was delayed for years by their record label. As the years passed, the bandâ€™s sound changed to the point where they no longer felt the album would be what the fans expected to hear, so Metric recorded a completely new album, Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?, that was released in 2003. Their third album, Live It Out, was originally released in 2005, but followed by a Drowned in Sound UK release in 2006.
