there is something endearing about the perfect pop song. metric has created a bunch of them, such as "combat baby" on their debut album from 2004. now emily haines (also a member of broken social scene) is back leading her pack with another song that has just the perfect combo of pop sensibility, clear melody and bellowing guitars. it is a simple summer song that will please for years to come. her look of au naturel hair, silver sequins and denim isn't too bad, either.
here's "sick muse". enjoy.
