Onetwo/Instead

Lovers of the spookier ‘80s, look this was – Onetwo are OMD’s Paul Humphreys and Claudia Brucken from Propaganda.

Humphreys creates sinister soundscapes like Joan Of Arc-era OMD, while Brucken still have the German hauter that made Dr Mabuse so thrilling.

They’ve both calmed down a mite since their heyday. Brucken’s range a little more limited and the keyboards a touch glossier. But at their best it’s synthpop heaven. 7/10
