Video of the Moment #1960: Metric

By on Thursday, 19th November 2015 at 6:00 pm

Canadian rockers Metric have a new video out for their song ‘The Governess’, which appears on their newest album ‘Pagans in Vegas’, which was released in September. The promo follows frontwoman Emily Haines wearing a large, wide-brimmed hat (channelling Pharrell or Stevie Nicks, perhaps?) as an cowgirl-like itinerant, espousing her thoughts on the never wavering desire for youth and the looking back on days gone by fondly.

It can’t be a mistake that her travels take her to Las Vegas, the city of sin, a place where as many dreams are made as are dashed. Despite the hardness and impersonal nature of the locales visited, Haines’ vocals and the country, twangy instrumentation are suitably yearning and lovely. Watch the video below.

All past coverage of Metric on TGTF is this way.
