Metric - What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

"I'm kind of embarrased that I'm really late to the game here with her," Haines said of the New York singer/songwriter.

"She sounds like someone who's actually experiencing things and then actually writing about them without the comfort of seperation or intellectualism. I just kind of felt like I had a sister out there." 

Emily Haines is a Canadian singer and songwriter, known for her work with Metric, Broken Social Scene, and as a solo artist. She was born in New Delhi, India, moving to Ontario with her parents as a young child.
