Published Nov 17, 2015Metric's album Pagans in Vegas has a synth-y, futuristic vibe, but frontwoman Emily Haines is kicking it Old West style in the band's new video for the track "The Governess."
The song has a hypnotic electro-country aesthetic with repetitive acoustic strums and slick, atmospheric textures. Much of the video consists of Haines strumming her acoustic guitar in rustic desert locales while wearing cowboy boots and a wide-brimmed hat. In the second half of the clip, she walks through the bright lights and surreal scenes of Las Vegas. It was directed by Lauren Graham.
Watch the video below.
This countrified vibe could be a hint what's in store for Metric's next album, which they have said is more organic and acoustic.
