Single Review – Metric – Fortunes

‘Fortunes’ is another single release from the established Toronto group Metric and is from their upcoming sixth studio album Pagans In Vegas which you can expect on September 18th. Their latest single is a more subtle affair with whispy piano chords and wiry off-beat synths which then slips towards a more ballad-like chorus with slow percussion and an unrelenting piano behind it and the song moves back in forth in this way. There’s no doubt that their singles have been varied but this one doesn’t match the charged power of ‘Cascades’ nor the emotional aspect of ‘Shade’. Hopefully the album tracks are more replicative of the earlier tracks from this album despite the decent showing from the group here.
