Oh Wonder Release Second Album Ultralife Today


14 JULY 2017 (Toronto, ON)—Oh Wonder are very pleased to release their second album, Ultralife today through Island Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.  Listen to Ultralife here.

In an era in which pop careers require careful planning, Oh Wonder are an anomaly. They are 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.

Ultralife’s luminescent lead single and title track sums up Oh Wonder’s new-found self-assurance and vaulting ambition. Easily the most up-tempo song they have ever released, it’s a slinky, sensual, piano and beats-driven burst of pure joy itching to soundtrack the start of summer.

Oh Wonder will embark on their international tour this fall, making eight stops in Canada, including three nights at the Danforth Music Hall. See the details on the Canadian dates below and go to the band’s website for the full itinerary.
