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.

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.

For Candice, Metals is the perfect outlet to come out snarling. For Chris it offers a chance to create something beyond “the restrictive false-happiness of dance music – but mainly to play live bass like Peter Hook. Low slung all the way.”

“We’re very serious about what we do – and politics plays a part in this band – but we don’t want to be too self-conscious,”
says Christopher. “There’s a lot of cheekiness involved in the live show. The perfection lies in the imperfection.”
