Metric Releases Synthetica Details

Synthetica is about being able to identify the original in a long line of reproductions. It’s about what is real vs what is artificial…[the record] sounds like the culmination of everything we have done. We’ve always had a sound in our heads that we hoped to realize and we finally heard it coming back out of the speakers this time.” – Emily Haines, @Metric
