“Help, I’m Alive” (Video)

     

    The video for Metric’s “Help, I’m Alive” mixes live performance video with lo-fi drawings and effects that alter the video of the band performing the song. The song is the standard, Metric-style new wave that the band has been rocking since their inception, and it’s got a knockout chorus: “Can you hear my heart beating like a hammer?” Emily Haines asks over ascending synths.

     

    Metrics new album, Fantasies, is out via self-release in a variety of packages here. [Stereogum]
