WATCH & SHARE: OMD – “THE PUNISHMENT OF LUXURY”
WATCH & SHARE: OMD – “ISOTYPE”

“”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.”
– NPR

“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
