Culling what one can from the music video for "Breathing Underwater," Canada's Metric is a popular band and performs and popular events, and deserve to anyhow. It would also be exhausting to be them.

That seems to be it.

"Breathing Underwater" is from Metric's "Synthetica," released in June; the album is getting a deluxe re-release this month, with five acoustic tracks tacked on. The shiny new version will be out Nov. 20 via digital retail and Dec. 4 at brick and mortar.
