Metronome Jones is a rock group hailing from Ottawa, Ontario. The trio is formed by Matthew Yorke on vocals/guitar, Ben Matte on bass, and Matt Holmgren on drums. Metronome Jones released their new EP entitled, “Metronome Jones” on August 21, 2015. The release contains six tracks including the single, “Waiting on the Winter.”
I found the EP to be a solid introduction to the band. I really the vocals and instrumentals. Varying influences that the band draws from are evident when listening to the album. Although a rock group, other genres can be heard throughout. I found it a very enjoyable EP to listen to from start to finish.
The tracks that stood out the most for me were “Waiting on the Winter” and “Cause I Said So.” I recommend checking out the lead single, “Waiting on the Winter” to gain a taste of the EP. If you enjoy it, pick up a copy of Metronome Jones’ self-titled release.
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
