There are so many failed attempts by British synth-pop bands of the 1980's to reform and record new music. Ultravox, Blancmange, Human League and many others have released highly disapponting albums in the last few years, but OMD - or Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark if you will - deliver. Their first attempt at a comeback was with the 2010 album History Of Modern, and with the new album English Electric and first single "Metroland", the duo consisiting of Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphries have really nailed it. They don't try to be OMD, they are OMD, and that's the difference. This is no attempt to alter their sound or really modernize it for that matter, it's just a very successful attempt at recreating the vibe from their 1980's heyday. Great song!
