Metric是来自加拿大多伦多的独立摇滚乐队,由Emily Haines,James Shaw,Josh Winstead,Joules Scott四人组成.女主唱Emily Haines与吉他手James Shaw同时也是加拿大19人乐队Broken Social Scene的成员."Grow Up and Blow Away"其实是Metric的第一张专辑,早在2001年就已录制完成,由于厂牌的拖延多年未发,直到07年6月才在Last Gang Records旗下发行.与之前的专辑相比少了点New Wave的元素,女主唱Emily Haines的柔美嗓音配上电子让专辑带有Trip-Hop的感觉,是一张不容错过的独立清新小电.

Metric is a Canadian New Wave/indie rock band. Originally formed in 1998 in New York City, they are currently based in Toronto, Ontario.The band consists of vocalist Emily Haines (who also plays the Synthesizer), guitarist James Shaw, bassist Josh Winstead and drummer Joules Scott-Key. Their first full-length album, Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?, was released in 2003. Their newest 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 as well as earning the Juno Award nomination for Best Alternative Album.Haines and Shaw also perform with Broken Social Scene, and Haines has been a guest on albums by Stars, KC Accidental, Delerium, The Stills, and Jason Collett. Scott-Key and Winstead have their own side project, Bang Lime, and Haines has released a solo album under the name Emily Haines and the Soft Skeleton.Their songs "Monster Hospital" and "Police and the Private" have been used on the television show Grey's Anatomy. "Monster Hospital" has also been used in CSI: Miami.

Metric’s latest album is actually their oldest, though you wouldn’t know it. Grow Up and Blow Away was previously unreleased until now, but this album is just as strong, if a little overly ambitious, than what would follow. Metric couldn’t find a label to release Grow Up and Blow Away, but they soldiered on and hit the radios (in Canada anyway) almost four years later with “Combat Baby”, which sparked so much attention that their album, Old World Underground, Where Are You Now? landed on many critics’ lists as the best of 2003. They seemed so great, where did these quirky Canadians come from anyway? Just like many so-called overnight successes, Metric had been building up to their breakthrough album for years. Focusing now on their newest release, by focusing on the past, Grow Up and Blow Away reveals that even at its inception, Metric was still a great band. This is a great album for the fans, full of interesting experiments and diverse sounds that are both very close to the Metric heard later, and also wildly different. In fact, wild enough that they reminded me at times of another deceptively soft Canadian group from the 90s, the Wild Strawberries.
