New Music: OMD- Metroland + Night Café
I am really looking forward to the new Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark record after hearing these two songs. In fact I might like "Night Café" and "Metroland" better than any of the new Depeche Mode songs that have recently come out and that is saying something because I am a huge DM fan.
"Metroland" comes with an accompanying animated video that features a train ride from the sunny suburbs to the congested, grimy, rainy city. The song sounds like it might be a love letter to Kraftwerk's "Trans Europe Express."
"Night Café" is another brilliant synth pop track and will be the third song off the band's new album, English Electric, which will be available April 9th. Listen below:
OMD will start a world tour in April and they will be in Toronto on both July 11th and July 19th for two sold out shows. For the rest of the tour line up check here.
