History of Modern
2010 album from the British Electronic/Synth Pop band, their first new album in 14 years. The album was produced by Omd and mixed by one of the UK's most in demand producers Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys/Blood Red Shoes/Razorlight). History of Modern is a powerful, pulsating, vibrant and contemporary album with a strong Pop sensibility. Tracks such as 'Pulse', 'Save Me', 'Sister Marie Says' and 'The Future' are huge future dancefloor fillers while others like the downtempo 'Bondage of Fate', 'If You Want It' and 'Sometimes' are quite simply beautiful, classic Omd songs. The music sees a return to the band's early pioneering electronic roots, a sound that is now recognized as being a major influence on many of today's electro artists. The likes of LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, the XX and the Killers have all cited Omd as a massive inspiration.
