Track of the day: Metric – Waves

Metric

Another track of the day as phoned in by outroversion. He’ll be back soon, I promise. Anyway!
So the track of today is one of those songs that was tucked away as a b-side when it could have easily held it’s place on the album, maybe even as the opener. Waves by Metric really is that good.

Wikipedia says:
The band consists of vocalist Emily Haines (who also plays the synthesizer and guitar), guitarist James Shaw (who also plays the theremin), bassist Josh Winstead and drummer Joules Scott-Key. Their first full-length album, Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?, was released in 2003 and earned a Juno Award nomination for Best Alternative Album. Live It Out was released on October 4, 2005 and was nominated for the 2006 Polaris Music Prize for the Canadian Album of The Year and once again the Juno Award nomination for Best Alternative Album.
Their fourth studio album Fantasies was released in Canada and the United States on April 7, 2009. It was shortlisted for the 2009 Polaris Music Prize for Canadian Album of the Year, and won the Alternative Album of the Year at the 2010 Juno Awards, as well as Group of the Year.
