As the indie rock band Metric becomes more and more popular, its recordings and videos have been pushing the envelope on concepts and creativity. This latest video--a cover of Buffalo Springfield's "Expecting To Fly"--is their latest effort, and it was featured on Metric's iTunes Session this past January 4th. Metric member Emily Haines explains further: "Over the holidays, our talented pal Christopher Mills, who previously created a short film for our song 'Collect Call,' continued the narrative with his gorgeous video for our cover of Neil Young/Buffalo Springfield's 'Expecting to Fly' which premieres exclusively on Huffington Post." The Metric iTunes Session includes stripped-down acoustic songs, full band plugged-in songs, songs with a string quartet accompaniment, an interview, and the aforementioned recording.
