Breaking More Waves is primarily a new music blog, and to many this means new bands and new artists that are only just breaking through. However today we post new music from a band that first hit the charts in 1980, but their electronic sound remains highly influential and cherished. OMD are back with a new album History of Modern on the 20th September, their first in over a decade and it’s preceded by a single If You Want It on the 6th September. The artwork for the album sees the band re-uniting with graphic designer Peter Saville to produce another bold and iconic cover.
If You Want It is trademark OMD and as they go back to the future, the duo are joining forces with modern electronic bands who no doubt owe debt to OMD in their influences. On their forthcoming European tour OMD will be supported by Breaking More Waves Ones To Watch 2010 - Mirrors and for their UK tour they will be joined by Finnish electro duo Villa Nah, who we recently blogged here. Furthermore Villa Nah have remixed If You Want It which is streaming and available for free download below. The remix retains the full essence of the OMD sound and could have probably been a single on its own right. Enjoy.
