ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR, SPOTIFY PRESALE 9/20 SHARE “WHAT HAVE WE DONE” EXTENDED VERSION VIA BROOKLYN VEGAN ‘THE PUNISHMENT OF LUXURY’ OUT NOW ON WHITE NOISE
“…a very nice mix of classic sounds, modern techniques, and the duo’s still-sharpe melodic skills.”
– Brooklyn Vegan
“”Isotype” is a soaring six minutes of deeply Kraftwerk-ian vocoder-pop, a masterclass in soulful electronic from a pair that’s been making music for four decades. In total OMD fashion, the new song takes a lesson from art history and applies it the modern day, examining how winky and smiling-pop icons have replaced everyday language.”
“Lyrically, The Punishment Of Luxury is distinguished by its thoughtful examinations of power dynamics….The Punishment Of Luxury exudes warmth and empathy throughout.”
– A.V. Club
“The Punishment of Luxury” is an addicting jolt of bright ’80s synthpop, replete with Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys’ pristine harmonies.”
– Consequence Of Sound
“Unconcerned with rewriting their ’80s glory, their new records are instead a modern-day continuation of the classic sound begun decades ago.”
– Under The Radar
