Some of us are wild ones Ever under wanted, I believe Lining up in the background Waiting for the crowd shot to be seen In the shadow of the big screen Everybody begs to be redeemed. Hey, I'm not synthetica I'll keep the life that I've got. We were never meant to Crawl in for the bait We never will I can think for myself I've got something no pill could ever kill

Emily Haines announced the arrival of Metric's fifth studio album Synthetica with a letter to fans that deliberately spelled out the record's lyrical themes. Synthetica is about staying home and wanting to crawl out of your skin from the lack of external stimulation," she wrote. It's about what is real versus what is artificial. This binary is common in contemporary art, to the point that it can seem a little trite, but Haines is too clever to settle into a simplistic "technology is bad" argument. Instead, she spends much of Synthetica pondering.

Metric, Synthetica - Mom & Pop, Metric Music International (2012). Last week, Apple held its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. During the conference, the company announced it's newest Macbook Pro, which features, among other things, a 2880 x 1800 pixel screen (hint: that's a lot of pixels ). For the sake of contrast, back in 2009 - the year that Metric's last album, Fantasies, came out - Steve Jobs was still the CEO, the company was a year away from releasing the iPad, and its then-current iPhone was the 3GS. In other words, a lot has happened since then.
That album perfectly took their usual tuneful blend of hooky new wave and spooky synth pop and blew it up to stadium-huge levels while adding more emotional content than ever before. It was a trick that seemed so improbable in the first place that it would be crazy for the group not to try re-creating it on Synthetica.
