The band OMD, in full known as Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, lit up the charts in the ‘80's and set the agenda for a bold new movement in British electronic music. They pioneered the synth-pop genre with starkly experimental albums such as Architecture And Morality (1981) and Dazzle Ships (1983). Hits such as ‘Enola Gay,' ‘Maid of Orleans' and ‘Souvenir' propelled them into the stratosphere and helped shape the musical landscape of the '80s.
Along with Human League and Gary Numan, OMD's tuneful blend of of cutting-edge synthwork, cool minimalism and soulful pop defined the decade, sold millions of records and turned the original early-‘80's OMD line-up of Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys, Malcolm Holmes and Martin Cooper into stars.
OMD's new album, English Electric, follows the success of History Of Modern, the 2010 self-released album marking the comeback of their original lineup, and went on to sell over 100,000 copies worldwide. The first single from their new album is "Metroland."
