7th November | O2 Academy
For most bands, the release of their debut album gives fans the opportunity to over indulge in previously unheard tracks, evoking a feeling of sheer excitement unlike any other. But for London based, delicate alt – pop duo Oh Wonder, their debut self titled album release couldn’t have been more different.
When Oh Wonder released their first album, fans would already have heard 12 of the 15 tracks as Antony West and Josephine Vander Gucht made the unusual decision to write, record and master all the tracks at their home studio in South London. They then released one track on the 1st of each month for the next year from September 2014 and within 3 days, ‘Body Gold’ had reached 100 000 plays on Soundcloud.
This tour promotes their second album ‘Ultralife’ which stays true to their intimate writing style which layers intricate harmonies and classically inspired instrumentation to provide a cinematic grounding for their elegantly simplistic lyrics. They have already reached over a million views on Youtube.
Oh Wonder will be joined by Norwegian singer Sigrid for their sell out show at Bristol’s O2 academy on November 7th.
