Metric Plays Music from New Album SYNTHETICA at Radio City Music Hall Tonight, 9/23
MSG Entertainment and The Bowery Presents will welcome Metric to the Radio City Music Hall tonight, September 23, 2012 at 8PM. This show is in support of the band's fifth, full-length studio album, Synthetica.
Synthetica was produced by Jimmy Shaw and mixed by John O'Mahony. Shaw describes Synthetica's enthralling balance of futuristic and organic sound on the new record as "[...] the culmination of everything we've done. We've always had a sound in our heads that we hoped to realize. We finally heard it coming back out of the speakers this time." Haines first envisioned the word "Synthetica" as the name for a particularly resilient skin-job from Blade Runner, a female replicant who voices an inner monologue of all your human imperfections. "If you imagine a nightmarishly fake version of me as a pop star, that's her," she says. "And this record was about me saying, I'm going to give more to the music than ever, but there's no way I'm going to turn into someone like that." As she sings on the album's hard-rocking title track; "We're all the time confined to fit the mold / But I won't ever let them make a loser of my soul."
