Artist Interview: Metrics
Tell us about yourself and your music
My name is Metrics. I have been producing for 10 yrs. & writing 7. I draw influence from all genres of music and artists. My sound varies from track to track, but tends to lean toward softer sounds with sharp-hazy vocals.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest release, 2 Nice, has a Spacey & Tropical sound. The lyrics are rhythmic combined with witty wordplay and punchlines. The music is danceable as well as good for sensual relaxation.
What inspired you to write this release?
I had been working on this project for 2 years prior to its release. The songs were compiled and the title was chosen as a play on the phrase “Nice guys finish last.” Being a ‘a nice guy’ I felt this saying was not representative of the people it stereotyped. And ‘2Nice’ was born.
Any plans to release a video?
There is a video available for ‘When Lighting Strikes’ which is the intro track to the EP. I hope to have videos drop for ‘Tangerine Dreams’ as well as ‘$Hores’
Any plans to hit the road?
Not as of yet. I am open for discussion though. [email protected] for performance inquiries. Until then, I’m working on my next project, ‘Up In The Am’
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
Staying up On social media is a great for indie artists, such as myself, to stand out.
Who have you been listening to lately?
I’ve been listening to my own music. Instrumentals, unfinished projects. Besides that, I’ve been keeping tabs on other indie artists like Antdog Da Beast, K.A.M. Lowery, & NeekoFromTheCruz.
Tell us about your passions
If I’m not making music, I love to go out and explore. Hikes in the mountains, beaches, etc. I also have a strange passion for partying…
What else is happening next in your world?
Up In The Am is the newest project Im currently working on. Full focus is on that and my entertainment company, CleverConcepts, right now
Thanks for an awesome interview, Dee!
