In an era in which pop careers require careful planning, Oh Wonder are an anomaly. They're a band formed by accident not design, a duo who didn't intend to play live but spent more than a year touring the world, and a major label act who never saw this being anything other than a DIY project.
Ultralife is both Oh Wonder's extraordinary second album and their debut proper. Its eponymously-titled predecessor, released in late 2015, was a collection of songs they had posted online at the rate of one a month, which millions of listeners fell in love with, turning London-based Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West into reluctant pop stars.
After self-releasing 15 of their songs as an album, Oh Wonder bowed to pressure to play live, booking just four shows — in London, Paris, New York and L.A. — planning to head straight back to the studio they'd built in a room at the bottom of Josephine's parents' garden. When all four gigs sold out within a week they were inspired to tour, ending up crossing the States several times, finding fans as far afield as South America, Australia, Russia and Asia. It culminated in 162 shows in 14 months across 112 cities, and a mighty 83,000 tickets sold. A connection.
Along the way, Oh Wonder's songs became soundtrack staples, featuring everywhere from Scream, Elementary and Made In Chelsea to Catfish, Collide and Coronation Street. The dreamy 'Drive' was used in the pilot for the BBC's hit show Doctor Foster. 'All We Do' was the spectral theme tune for Unforgotten, ITV's recent, acclaimed detective series. Don’t miss Oh Wonder at Newport Music Hall on May 9th!
