Here’s two absolutely legendary heavyweights of electronic music in one track. How is that not amazing? We introduced you to 80s icons Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark’s new single, Dresden, earlier in the month, well here it is as envisioned by SynthPop pioneer John Foxx, here in his John Foxx And The Maths guise.
Pulsating robot-synths and machine beats are the order of the day here as Foxx brings his cold, futuristic, SynthPop to OMD’s more human take on the genre. Shuffling, noisy rhythms and relentless synth bass craft out a core for the track to unleash a combination of icy vintage synth drones and Andy McCluskey’s passionate vocal. To pillars of 80s music, who have both been delivering quality, intelligent, synth sounds consistently over the past two decades, here show why they are innovators, why they are so respected, and why they are still forces to be reckoned with in 2013.
