Pandora's Box

Latter-stage Orchestral Maneouvres in the Dark, while not as celebrated as the time when Paul Humphreys was with the band, nevertheless still proves that Andy McCluskey could carry the OMD banner on his own, and not without some class and substance too. One of the more worthwhile singles from this particular era of OMD is 1991's "Pandora's Box", a brightly coloured, heartfelt love letter to little-known silent-movie star Lousie Brooks. Check out the atmospheric, stylish black-and-white video clip here.
