Orchestral Manoeuvres get XX-d up

OMD are a perplexing bunch these days, seeming to have abandoned the brilliant futurism of their past in favour of a wedding disco dance. Yet see them live and the Architecture & Morality and Dazzle Ships material sounds as vital as ever. And now this cover of The XX's 'VCR' manages to keep the fragile charm of the original while becoming something that is very OMD - vulnerable, yet still pop. Check it out via Soundcloud here:
