Metric Systems is the secret project of Australian duo Kate Crawford and Bo Daley who have been making music together for over 20 years. Taken from a large archive of material, the eight tracks presented on People in the Dark, their new LP on Sydney-based imprint Best Effort, were recorded between 2000 and 2016 across various locations in Sydney, Melbourne and New York.
There’s a strange sense of unease and paranoia that is prevalent throughout the entire album, particularly on today’s premiere ‘Everything Was Different’. Commencing with soft experimental textures and distant crashing waves, a beautifully haunting spoken passage is introduced. The track slowly picks up the pace with the introduction of crisp hi hats and a deep dubby bass line, before the dulcet spoken word enters once more to bring us back to reality.
