Superior Mirage by METZ

Darkenin Heart

Toronto-based noise rock trio METZ will unveil their new album, Up On Gravity Hill, on April 12th, 2024 via Sub Pop globally, while Dine Alone will handle the release in Canada. Their newest single, Superior Mirage, showcases a departure from their typical loud and punchy style, leaning towards a more melodic direction.

METZ's Alex Edkins says about the track: “It’s definitely new territory for us, and I really love the sounds we were able to achieve. We blended a Linn Drum with some homemade samples and made this ad-hoc junkyard drum sound that propels the song along. We really tried to make the backbeat the defining trait of the song. The lift on the chorus is pretty huge, too. We wanted the wall of guitars to knock you sideways.”

Up On Gravity Hill was engineered by Seth Manchester (Mdou Moctar, Lingua Ignota, Battles, The Body). Additionally, the album features guest appearances from Amber Webber of Black Mountain and composer/string arranger Owen Pallett.
