Watch Metric perform "Synthetica" live on The Late Show with David Letterman

As part of NPR's "Sense of Place: Toronto" series, Metric's Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw performed some stripped-down cuts from their latest album "Synthetica": "Synthetica", "Live It Out", "Gimme Sympathy", and "Breathing Underwater". Listen now on NPR.

Metric are currently finishing up a mammoth US tour alongside Paramore, which recently saw them dominate at NYC's Madison Square Garden. While in town, the band also dropped by The Late Show with David Letterman for this killer rendition of "Synthetica", before heading to Bowery Ballroom for a last minute surprise intimate headline show.
