got false lights for the sun, it's an artificial nocturne, it's an outsider's escape for a broken heart
the title of this photo is taken from the first track of the latest metric album synthetica. like almost all of their albums, i kinda hated it when i first heard it, and slowly it's grown on me. i was introduced to the band at my old job when my workmates would put live it out on the stereo. i instantly found the lead singers voice irritating, and her lyrics annoyed me. while i still don't regard it as one of their better albums, i slowly grew to tolerate it and then to enjoy a few tracks. the subsequent releases have become progressively more poppy, a trait i would ordinarily shun, but seems to fit with the band. i now like the lead singers voice, and hey i'm even using her lyrics for my photos now. i've come to the conclusion that for me, they fall into the category of being perfect 'working music'. this category usually includes bands who are write decent enough music that doesn't distract you by being spectacular. you can stick it on and get on with your business with pleasant noise in your ears, safe in the knowledge your focus won't be interrupted. they join coldplay in this category.
