Metric Systems, an Australia duo made up of Kate Crawford and Bo Daley, return to the label for their eight-track debut album, which features just a small selection from a large archive of recorded materials produced over the last 20 years. Musically, People In The Dark is dark, haunting, beautiful, and cinematic; it's hard-to-define music that touches on house, techno, electro, and more beat-driven pastures.
Electricity" is the 1979 debut single of the English group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, featured on their eponymous debut album the following year.

Metric is a Canadian rock band founded in 1998 in Toronto, Ontario. Although the band is Canadian, Haines was born in India to American parents, and Winstead and Scott-Key are American.
Metric Systems is the name of a covert project of over 20 years duration. It has moved across multiple continents, under multiple names. The 8 songs that make up ‘People in the Dark’ were recorded between 2000 and 2016 in various locations across Sydney, Melbourne and New York. The bright-eyed sci-fi fascination of Australia’s Clan Analogue collective intertwines with the more sinister facets of modern technology - echoed voices pepper the album like fragments of a surveillance tape collected by our digital panopticon.
