Metric "Fortunes"

Metric 'Fortunes'
Synth-y Canadian rock stars Metric have already released a few songs from their forthcoming Pagans in Vegas, and now they've rolled out another with "Fortunes."

The song features a surprising juxtaposition between its verse and chorus. While the verses are slinky and slightly ominous in their low-key grooves, the arrangement goes widescreen when it swells during the chorus. It takes on an orchestral orchestral rock grandeur as it transforms into a straightforward mega-ballad.

Hear it below [via Entertainment Weekly]; it's accompanied by a simple visualizer with a fortune-teller's crystal ball.

Pagans in Vegas will be out on September 18 through MMI/Crystal Math/Universal.
