Pioneering synth-pop group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) return with their thirteenth album and a night of stylish synth-pop. Founded almost forty years ago by two teenage Kraftwerk fans, OMD’s early albums ‘Architecture and Morality’ and ‘Dazzle Ships’ shaped the dominant electro sound of the 80s.
Described by The Quietus as “one of the best bands ever”, OMD’s sound has influenced the likes of The xx, the Killers and LCD Soundsystem. New tracks like ‘Electricity’ and ‘Souvenir’ prove that the band’s “adventurous blend of drama and pathos” (Pitchfork) lives on.
