Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark [uk] - History Of Modern Art Part 2 (2010)


*In the late 70s OMD were early synthesizer adopters and pop musicians with a serious avant-garde bent, who were looking to Kraftwerk and Harmonia. They combined their melancholy synth ballads and uptempo synthpop with a warm-hearted melodic sensibility.  In the mid/late 80s they got more and more into mainstream and lost their special spirit.
