Toronto band Metric have a history of their music being used in the media. Their songs have featured on shows from Grey's Anatomy to Entourage to House, and many more. And video games too. And movies - Black Sheep played a big part in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World but was voiced by Brie Larson, the frontwoman of the fictional band the Clash at Demonhead for the film. Two tracks were used in the fantastic Zombieland, and Eclipse (All Yours) was written specifically for the Twilight: Eclipse soundtrack.
Now though, Metric are going one step further. Following in the footsteps of Neil Young (with Dead Man), Aimee Mann (Magnolia), Daft Punk (Tron: Legacy), the Chemical Brothers (Hanna) and Trent Reznor (of Nine Inch Nails) with Atticus Ross (The Social Network and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), they'll be scoring the soundtrack to David Cronenberg's upcoming Cosmopolis. Starring Robert Pattinson, Paul Giamatti, Jay Baruchel and Juliette Binoche, it's an adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel of the same name, the story of a millionaire going on a trek around Manhattan. It's due out next year. It's all-star cast also features one of TIFF's Rising Stars, Sarah Gadon. We spoke to her about what it was like to work with Pattinson on the film. Watch below:
Metric will work on the soundtrack with Howard Shore, the Oscar winning composer who won three Oscars for his work over the Lord of the Rings trilogy. You can see the use of Black Sheep in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World below:
