The Punishment of Luxury


Synth-pop pioneers OMD return with their dazzling 13th studio album The Punishment of Luxury which sees them combine the wistful nostalgia and idealised romance of their previous work while stepping out of their comfort zone. The follow up to the critically acclaimed English Electric (released in 2013) The Punishment Of Luxury is a daring collection of stylish synth pop and masterful songwriting which will certainly rank alongside their very best. Written, recorded, produced and mixed by OMD - Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys - the album is the sound of a band in their prime. ‘On this album we have managed to make beautiful things out of noises and repetitive patterns’, explains Andy. ‘The trouble is, we just cant help but write a catchy melody!’ The album takes its name from an 1891 painting by the Italian Giovani Segantini and contains everything from the Kraftwerkian Isotype and Robot Man to the blue eyed soul ballads of One More Time and The View From Here as well as more traditional OMD songs like Kiss Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Bang and the synth heavy title track.
