WATCH: Metric Releases Addicting Video For “Breathing Underwater”

Ever since the Toronto indie pop band, Metric, formed in the late '90s, rocker Emily Haines has never ceased to be an "it girl." Everyone either wants to be her, date her, or settle for being her best friend—for life. 

Their newest video for "Breathing Underwater," the fourth track on Synthetica, only heightens these feelings. The video contains live footage of the band performing at Lollapalooza, hanging out backstage, rocking out in a limo, playing foosball, and Emily Haines almost always with a tambourine, as though it's simply an extension of her hand. She is frequently featured in a t-shirt and leather jacket with flame designs, only adding to her general hotness.

Each time E.H. sings "Is this my life? Am I breathing underwater?," we as listeners, change the lyrics just a smidge—"Is this my life? Staring at Metric?" Yes, it is. And you love every second of it. 

Synthetica Deluxe will be available digitally one week from today, on November 20, and physically December 4. Get ready to bob along to five acoustic tracks too!
