Amoeba Review

Daniel Tures 03/10/2013

Some bands age and get weird and different, but once in a while a band turns up 30 years later sounding just as fresh and fun and timeless as your inner teen could wish. The great '80s synthpop kings O.M.D. are that band. How the heck do they do it? Since reuniting in 2010 for their comeback album History of Modern, Paul Humphreys and Andy McCluskey have made the rest of us feel young again, bashing out the crystalline synthesizer soul and singing in angelic high voices that haven't aged a day. Tunes like "Metroland" from their new one, English Electric, are just as utopian and satisfying as anything since Architecture & Morality or "Enola Gay." Simplicity itself, with gently twining synth lines, percolating beats and interstellar vocals. There's plenty of young kids out there plugging in and electrowaving it up, and all power to them, but let the elder statesmen really show how it's done. Read More
