Synth-bedazzled indie rock band Metric have always made plainly catchy pop songs driven by singer/keyboardist Emily Haines' deceptively clever lyrics. On previous albums, concerns as weighty as war, the state, capitalism and mortality have lurked on the outskirts of her songs while more personal romantic struggles played out in the foreground. More than just a reference to the band's use of synthesizers, the title of Metric's fifth studio album Synthetica signposts its lyrical themes: about telling the real from the artificial, the distances between representation, perceptions and reality, between surfaces and their hidden interiors. Not that you need to worry about all that to enjoy these songs for their dramatic synths and guitars, and Haines' tuneful and charismatic singing.
