On the genre-smashing Whatshewants, Metric's productions have become more assured, as have the range of influences he brings into his music. In his new grooves, stark electro, indie rock, house, and of course those famous Marine Parade snares all get dumped into the blender to produce a fresh sound not from concentrate. Inspired by everything from Jacques Le Cont and Daft Punk to his obsession with bad 80's records and krautrock rhythms, Metric chops up the beats ‘n vocals here like if he were Prince signed to Ed Banger. Slamming tracks like 'Oh' percolate with ironic electro-pop synths and brash hip-hop attitude, while 'Breakin Hearts' seduces with chunky guitar glitch given the trademark Metric acid wash. The e.p.’s cheeky power culminates in the title track, 'Whatshewants,' a squelching dancefloor stormer whose chunky hooks bring rude rock intensity to electronic club thump. 'It's all quite a mash-up of stuff,' Metric explains. 'I'm inspired by anything with a bit of balls and attitude.'
