Iconic synth-pop
OMD - History Of Modern

The aptly titled ‘History Of Modern’, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark’s first release in fourteen years, is a must-have for fans of the iconic synth-pop foursome. The fifty-eight minute runtime aside, co-founder Andy McCluskey reckons the album is OMD’s finest hour since ‘Architecture And Morality’. While songs ‘Bondage Of Fate’, ‘If You Want It’ and ‘Sometimes’ present a classic vibe, standalone track ‘Pulse’ is equally akin to the electronic sound of today. Nice touch.
