Metric Share Their Restless New Single, ‘Fortunes’

performs onstage during day 1 of the 2013 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival at the Empire Polo Club on April 12, 2013 in Indio, California.

A few weeks out from releasing their new album, Pagans in Vegas, Canadian synth-rock outfit Metric have unveiled an anxious-sounding new single called “Fortunes.”

Frontwoman Emily Haines confirmed the song’s uneasy undertones, telling EW, “It’s kind of intense to look back on the writing of it because it was a pretty heavy time in New York where I remember going through this thing of a lot of people leaving. Everybody was moving to L.A., and the people staying were wondering why are we staying If they were leaving, why are we leaving? It’s just a sense of the larger awareness of how do you know when it’s the end of a chapter.”
