Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) rose to prominence in 1980 with the song “Enola Gay”. This synthpop gem was guaranteed to fill New Wave dance floors.

The band, originally founded by Andy McCluskey (vocals, bass guitar) and Paul Humphreys (keyboards, vocals), continued on and off for years, finally disbanding in 1996 only to reform 10 years later.

Their 2nd album since reformation, English Electric, is due in a couple of weeks.

“Metroland”, the new single, has that classic OMD sound.
