Metals show How To Drop Your Guard


Metals. Like their name, on its sleek, gleaming surface the music of this Australian duo has an air of the cold and clinical about it thanks to the android beats of producer Digital Primate (aka Melbourne-based Christopher Coe). Injected with some soul from singer Candice Butler however, and you have the perfect symbiosis of man and machine; chrome sounds covered in lipstick kisses.

Debut single ‘Drop Your Guard’ builds upon the foundation of a guitar riff to create a crisp electro-rock banger that could go toe-to-toe with any artist out there. With Digital Primate offering a delicious serving of neon beats, bass-heavy garage and distorted guitar licks and Candice Butler’s savvy rhymes, evocative vocals and political musings, ‘Drop Your Guard’ showcases Metals’ edgy, fuel driven sound that refuses to be pigeon-holed.

To celebrate the launch of ‘Drop Your Guard’, Metals have teamed up with cardboard warriors Box Wars, who they collaborated with for the epic ‘Drop Your Guard’ Music video. Check out the Making of.. video below

Metals utilise modern technology then, but know that it is ultimately meaningless without those distinctly human qualities to drive it along: anger, passion, rage, desire. Peel back the chrome plating of Metal’s exterior and you’ll find a big beating heart. They are an utterly 21st century band in all respects.
