Just today, Toronto noise-makers METZ have shared another song (and video) from their upcoming long-player, Atlas Vending. The dystopian themed video was shot in Queenstown, on the South Island of New Zealand and directed by Dylan Pharazyn.
“I started thinking of the feeling of war or samurai films, beautiful but dark and violent… but then I had this idea to work up a more unique world… I started to think of a more futuristic setting — more unusual and dream-like with the story set on a distant planet where there is future technology and some kind of alien magic… like a futuristic fable. I loved the idea of the hero Ayeth on this nomadic walk through an epic landscape… I loved the strength in her and the pairing of her with a wounded companion, something really human and vulnerable… I wanted that emotive warmth countering the cold military images.”
It’s a visual trip you won’t soon forget … now it’s time for you to see and hear what we’re talking about.

Toronto noise-makers METZ are back with a brand new song (and video) for your listening pleasure. Clocking in at over 7 minutes, it’s a raucous number that will leave you drooling for more. The track will be included on their upcoming album Atlas Vending to released October 9th through Royal Mountain and Sub Pop.
The song is “…about leaving a bad situation behind. About overcoming obstacles that once held you back, rising above, and looking to a better future. The title refers to immersing yourself fully into what you love and using it as a sanctuary from negativity and a catalyst for change.” The band has shared a new video for the track which Video Director Tony Wolski sought to visually enhance and expand on these ideas. Wolski: “The song has a beautiful, crushing numbness to it that we wanted to mirror in the visual. So we chose to romanticize our main character’s descent into her delusions of love and togetherness. At a time when everyone’s simultaneously coping with some sort of isolation, a story about loneliness—and the mania that comes with it—seems appropriate to tell.”
