OMD: an 80's synthpop band regrouped three years ago. Their new album "English Electirc" returns to their synthpop root. I love the juxtapostion of retro 80's sound and futuristic eletronic style. Metrodland is the first single from OMD's that new album. I love the song immediately. But I do not like the cover of that single. It's basically a variation of their album cover. I've always want to do a poster/single cover for Metroland. Concept: During a interview, OMD explain the song is about people are commuting from suburb to metropolitan area daily. That's exactly what the music video's all about.
