In August 2023, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) release the first single “Bauhaus Staircase” from their 14th album “Bauhaus Staircase”, which is released shortly after in autumn. OMD are one of the earliest, most commercially successful and consistent synth-pop groups. They have consistently drawn inspiration from early electronic music to write three-minute pop songs, or sprawling experimental works.

OMD haven’t changed much in five decades but the pioneers of synthpop have warned that this 14th album – the fourth since coming back together in 2006 – would undoubtedly be their last. Well into their sixties, Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys plan to hang up the hat after one final tour with this Bauhaus Staircase in order to enjoy a well-deserved retirement. For this final studio project, OMD does what they do best, with a dozen unadulterated synth pop tracks, bringing everything full circle. Echoing their worldwide 1980 hit “Enola Gay,” which spoke out against the horror of the atomic bomb, their desire to protest can be felt in what they consider to be their “most political album to date”.

It’s true that they seem to be more inspired when they’re speaking out against something, as on “Kleptocracy,” addressed to Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, and Boris Johnson. The Englishmen also seem very concerned about the future of the human race, as on “Anthropocene,” which would’ve ignited Ibiza at the end of the 80s with its Balearic melody, or the excellent “Evolution of Species,” a clear homage to Kraftwerk, a key group in Andy McCluskey’s imaginary since he saw them in 1975 at the age of 16 in Liverpool – “the concert that changed his life.” OMD then finishes off with “Healing,” a magnificent synth ballad that sublimely brings to an end the adventure of this key international pop group. – Smaël Bouaici
