|Availability:||OUT OF STOCK|
|Status:||SIGN UP FOR RESTOCK NOTICE|
On Metric's sixth album, Pagans in Vegas, most of the tracks are so refined they sparkle. These Canadians dress up their glitzy alt-rock with an extra coat of shimmery new wave, with tracks flashing like a relentless strobe light as Emily Haines purrs "I want it all." Synths sizzle and squeal through "Fortunes" and "The Shade" before rippling into smooth chill-wave on "Celebrate". The velvety guitar floating under "For Kicks" hints at The Cure, while Depeche Mode's dark dynamism haunts "Too Bad, So Sad". It all ends in a luscious instrumental, with rich organ strains reaching synth-pop nirvana.
Heavyweight double vinyl produced by Grand Jury Records in 2015. Gatefold sleeve.
