With their 13th studio album ‘The Punishment Of Luxury’ out September 1st via 100% Records, synth-pop pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark release new single ‘Isotype’ impacting July 14th.
Written, recorded, produced and mixed by OMD – Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys – ‘Isotype’ is taken from the duo’s brilliant new album ‘The Punishment Of Luxury’; a daring collection of stylish synth pop and masterful song writing that will rank alongside their very best.
Boasting an infectious synth line and soaring melody ‘Isotype’ sees the band address the issues of communication and technology within the 21st century. Speaking of the track Andy said ‘”It’s about the modern world where our communication value systems are so reduced that you wonder if we’re actually getting any clear point across’.
