Metric Has A Hippie Video For YOU


Add a third split
screen and it would be just like Woodstock!
Paint it black, you devils!


By Blurt Staff


“We had a lot of fun making this video. We shot it at our
old stomping ground Sound Academy in Toronto
with director Frank Borin. The entire video was shot in one take, so you can
imagine the amount of preparation that went into getting it right. We decided
to film as much behind the scenes footage as possible so that we could show you
how it went down…Check it out here! – xox metriclovesyou”



That’s BLURT faves Metric – currently featured in the new
issue of our mag – talking, about their new, elaborate, split-screen video to “Gimme
Sympathy.” This alternate video shows two videos simultaneously – the official
music video on the left and behind the scenes footage of what was happening
during each part of the video shoot on the right.  It’s a unique glimpse
at what it takes to make a music video and all the hard work that creates the
final video.
