New Song Of The Day: Metric - Dressed To Suppress

Radio13

With a new album on the horizon, Metric serve up a second single/video.

Although the band's upcoming album, due out on September 21st, doesn't have a title yet, their new song does. It's called Dressed To Suppress. Here's what Metric vocalist Emily Haines has to say about it:

“Lyrically, the song explores the maze of conflicts we encounter in our attempts at finding and holding onto love; the absurd mating rituals we routinely perform; and the vast divide between the desires our appearances can imply and the way we actually feel inside. Sonically, it’s one of the most intense songs on the album. We’re already playing it live and it’s getting stronger every night. The contrast between the delicate, dreamy opening and the heavy riffs of the verse and chorus match the dramatic emotional shifts we all go through when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, the push and pull of retaining our own identities in love.”
