Emily Haines - Metric

Et voila!

get to know me meme: [3/5] bands/musicians
Metric (Emily Haines, Jimmy Shaw, Josh
Winstead, Joules Scott-Key)

"There’s a coldness even in the name of our band to sort of balance the fact that we are going to pour our hearts into it … We can’t be called, like, The Hugs."

[Live It Out] is my favourite Metric album because it sounds the most like the people who made it: beautiful, witty, angry, pissy, endlessly energetic; gifted with punk virtuosity and a belief in pop and an incredibly strong desire to connect, for better or worse. In My Favourite Metric Track Ever (capitals intentional folks), ‘Monster Hospital,’ Emily [Haines] famously sings ‘I fought the war/ but the war won.’ What a lot of people don’t know is that when it comes to Metric, that was the plan all along. They don’t want to win. They just want to say they were there, and that they f—ked with it. That’s what they mean when they tell you to live it out. See?
Torquil Campbell (via holopleasures)



leslie feist on qtv with chilly gonzales, torquil campbell, and jian ghomeshi (x)

did anyone else notice when torq was talking about how everyone should be given 2 pairs of jeans a year by the government, because no one should have to buy jeans, they should be born with the right to have jeans… and chilly was like, “i agree, everyone should be born with jeans!” but it was a genes pun and like in the background you just hear leslie clap and wheeze. i was so proud she caught that, nobody else caught that.

I ALMOST MISSED THAT had it not been for the clap i wouldnt have realized but then it hit me
he had the chance and he took it and it did not go unnoticed thank god
