With ‘Fantasies,’ Metric marries sticky tunes with meaningful lines

Metric’s latest effort, Fantasies, is best summarized with a few lines from its irresistibly hooky opening track, “Help, I’m Alive.” Vocalist Emily Haines sings, “I get wherever I’m going / I get whatever I need / while my blood’s still flowing / and my heart still beats.” The sense of contentment in these lyrics persists throughout the record, promulgating a Zen-like philosophy that advocates living in the moment and not dwelling on life’s troubles.
