Metric is a Canadian indie rock band out of Toronto that has seen their worldwide popularity explode in recent years. Winners of two Juno Awards this year (Alternative Album of the Year and Group of the Year), Emily Haines et Co. have come a long way since their humble beginning in a loft in Brooklyn - where members of the band were struggling to buy food.
Since 2001, the band has produced four albums, released 15 singles and toured the world over and over again. Haines has also released a solo LP and EP; along with bandmate James Shaw, they have also performed on and off with Kevin Drew musical collective Broken Social Scene.
Metric's latest effort, 2009's Fantasies, has been described as a full-on bid for pop glory and it's a smashing success (allmusic). They're definitely a band easy to like - their album are honest and unpretentious, and they give it all on stage for their fans.
