the Synth-pop pioneers return with a dazzling 13th that retains the wistful nostalgia & idealised romance of their previous work whilst stepping out of their comfort zone.

this is a daring collection of stylish synth pop & masterful songwriting which will certainly rank alongside their very best. “On this album we have managed to make beautiful things out of noises & repetitive patterns”, explains Andy. The album takes its name from an 1891 painting by the Italian Giovani Segantini & contains everything from the Kraftwerkian ‘Isotype’ & ‘Robot Man’ to the blue eyed soul ballads of ‘One More Time’ & ‘The View From Here’ as well as more traditional OMD songs like ‘Kiss Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Bang’ & the synth heavy title track. The xx, the Killers & LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy have cited OMD as an inspiration.
