Metric’s Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw discuss their fifth studio album Synthetica with Drowned in Sound editor Sean Adams. This conversation includes chat about the writing of the album, Jimmy’s seven “synth symphonies”, a photograph which inspired the album, rock’n’roll’s existential crisis, whether ‘protest music is dead’, but the bulk of the conversation swarms around the idea of authenticity in an age of Instagram and Urban Outfitters.
