OMD dedicate ‘Electricity’ to Tim Peake


The pioneering and highly influential British synthpop band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) have dedicated their classic song ‘Electricity’ to ESA astronaut Tim Peake.

The band have always been fascinated by science, technology and transport, with songs inspired in particular by aircraft and space, so they have been following Tim’s preparations for his upcoming Principia mission with great interest. OMD are Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys, backed by Malcolm Holmes and Martin Cooper.
