Exclusive Audio: Metric Offers an Orchestral Take on Buffalo Springfield

Toronto indie band debuts track from iTunes session

By |

Today, listen to an exclusive preview of Toronto quartet Metric's iTunes session (on iTunes tomorrow), which will feature eight new tracks. The session includes an interview with the band plus the new songs, most of them featuring alternate arrangements. Some of the new versions are stripped-down and acoustic, but other tracks — like their gorgeous, melancholy take on Buffalo Springfield’s “Expecting to Fly” — expand the band’s usual musical palette with the addition of a string quartet.
