Malcolm Holmes

Music Design & Creation


As the drummer for legendary electro-pop giants OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark). I played on classic OMD songs such as Enola Gay, Messages, Souvenir, Locomotion, Tesla Girls, Talking Loud and Clear, Secret, So in Love, American block buster If You leave and the smash hit Maid of Orleans. I’ve put my drumming stamp on a massive catalog of OMD songs that have amassed over 40 million in sales and 100’s of millions of streams. In 2014 I hung up my OMD drumsticks.


For those that are interested here's a bit of info of where I've been and where I'm going.


From my studio I write and produce music for various projects, clients and artists.

I stopped playing drums but didn't stop making music.

After a long career playing with OMD it has come to an end. Making music is in my blood … I create music from my studio near Hamburg in Germany.
