With the release of Area 11's latest album Modern Synthesis, I had the chance to chat with Jonathan Kogan (AKA Kogie) about the record, as well as experiences and inspirations as a band on the whole.

AREA 11 – Modern Synthesis

Overall, Modern Synthesis is a little different to what I'm used to hearing, but to me, that's always a good thing (I was especially impressed by the mixed sounds of Watchmaker). Anyway, I'm sure once it's released on Friday, fans of Area 11 will feel that this has been worth the wait.
