Info for Ultralife
London-based duo Oh Wonder began as a writing project, when Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West set out to write, record and release one song every month for a year, hoping to pitch the songs to other artists. Three months into their song-a-month challenge, however, they had established an international audience who were attentively awaiting new music on the first of each month turning them into reluctant pop stars.
„Ultralife“ is Oh Wonder's extraordinary second album.
Written in New York and London and entirely composed, produced and mixed by the duo, „Ultralife“ takes the hallmarks of the band's experimental debut - its hypnotic dual vocals, its exposed, emotional lyrics, its bewitching, ethereal beauty - and adds the weight of experience, the confidence of success and the coherence that comes from forward planning.

When we last heard from Londoners Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West, they were capping an incredible year with a sold-out show at London’s Roundhouse. In the space of fourteen months, they went from tentatively playing a first live show at London’s ICA to touring the world, playing shows across Latin America, Australia, Russia and Asia, and repeat UK, Europe, US and Canada tours to ever increasing rooms. It culminated in 162 shows in 112 cities, with a mighty 83,000 tickets sold. A connection.
Oh Wonder began as a writing project, where the duo set out to write, record and release one song every month for a year, hoping to inevitably pitch the songs to other artists. However the tracks were being listened to in their hundreds of thousands, and then into their multi-millions; now their first album is fast approaching half a billion streams. Anthony and Josephine’s side project had inadvertently morphed into an internationally touring band; a happy accident indeed.
‘Ultralife’ is the sound of a new confidence seeping into the pair’s songwriting. It is muscular in its delivery, celebratory in its message, and plays with a dizzying array of textures and sounds, but without losing the essence of what makes Oh Wonder so special.
Oh Wonder head to the US in April to play a series of West Coast shows around their two slots at Coachella. They return to the US in May for six further dates ahead of a summer of festival performances across the UK/Europe.
This album contains no booklet.
