Welcome to Bossy’s Ear Worm, which features songs currently in Bossy’s headphones. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
Metric, Help I’m Alive.
Metric first formed in New York City a decade ago, but this song is from their latest April 2009 release, Fantasies. Bossy likes this song, where haunted electronica meets old-school British New Wave.
Help, I’m alive, my heart keeps beating like a hammer
Hard to be soft, tough to be tender

It looks like a 1987 vinyl albums cover.

They remind me a bit of The Breeders. I love them.
