It took me all of three notes to say ‘SWEET, a new OMD track’! But wait, then it kicked into gear and I heard a more modern Synth sound and I found myself saying please don’t be one of those tracks where the music is amazing and then the vocals come in and ruin it. Well, that’s not happening here! What a pleasant surprise coming across this lovely little synthpop nugget.
I will admit I had to google just who the heck this Johan Baeckstroem character is, and come to find out he was part of the 90’s Synthpop duo Daily Planet who surprised me with the similarly out of nowhere track Nobody’s Friend a couple of years back. That song absolutely dripped of classic Yaz.
So, we’ve got Yaz and OMD and I cannot wait to hear what’s next!
