dMh covers Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark’s ‘Messages’ with a gritty attitude


dMh recently released his re-imagining of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark’s ‘Messages’. Where once were synths now lie intricate electric guitar lines, re-positioning the track’s atmosphere with a more gritty attitude. Arpeggios scatter the soundscape, whilst melodies dance around the lead vocal. It’s a faithful tribute to the original track, transforming it with new ideas, whilst maintaining the new romantic blueprints.

dMh adds, “I always loved the original and felt the song could lend itself quite nicely to a rock-ish guitar treatment”

After first teasing the project with a cover of Joy Division’s ‘Disorder’, the release of ‘Messages’ brings listeners ever closer to dMh’s birthplace homage, the album ‘Songs From The North’.

Growing up in Preston before receiving classical music training in Liverpool. A career as an audiobook narrator and voice actor has been interspersed with musical releases, including an album of contemporary classical solo piano music and ‘After We Are Gone’, which features Stephen Fry’s narration of Andrew Copson. Airplay from 6 Music and Radio 2 courtesy of Jarvis Cocker, Tom Robinson and the late Janice Long have all shown dMh as an artist with talent.
