Single Review – Metric – Cascades

Toronto’s Metric are building up to the release of what will be their sixth studio album Pagans in Vegas, out on September 18th and with their new single ‘Cascades’, they claim it to be the ‘Pounding Heart’ of their new album so in that case it better be good! Thankfully for Metric it is up to scratch as they appear to have delved deeper into their synth-pop repertoire with the buoyant beats, softly nudging lead chords and a vocoder filtration upon Emily Haines vocal all set out to deliver their aims faithfully and cleanly. This results in a slick and hook-laden piece of electronica with the right balance of depth and light. This song does sit somewhere between Giorgio Moroder and Daft Punk and that’s not a bad place to be and there’s much potential to had with this song as the album’s foundation.
