“The south-east London duo deliver monthly electro-pop treats” Q
“The sound gets more fabulous with each song, as they dazzle the crowd with piercingly emotional vocals…
This gifted twosome are no one-hit wonders.” The Independent
“As a debut outing, it’s a thing of wonder.” Evening Standard
“Heart-sore piano ballads and demure electro pop” Mojo
2015 was the year that Oh Wonder trashed the rulebook.
The duo wrote, recorded and posted a track online every month and, at the end of the year, released the results as their self-titled debut album. With over 100 million streams, Oh Wonder are defying the boundaries of the traditional album campaign.
The band sold out two nights at both London’s ICA and Village Underground, as well as selling out all of their US & European tour dates, before ever setting foot live onstage. Their debut shows in September 2015 at London’s ICA were met with huge acclaim.
We're a few weeks into 2016 and the band have just finished a further US tour that sold out in under an hour and they're about to play their biggest sold-out headline show at the London Forum (on 17th March).
‘Lose It’ is the follow-up single to ‘Without You’, which saw the band land a BBC Radio 1 Track Of The Day plus playlist rotation at the station.
Talking of the new single, Josephine said that ‘Lose It’ is about, “An awesome house party that we went to, where it felt like there was no judgement between anyone; what you looked like and how you danced was irrelevant - you could be whoever you wanted to be. 'Lose It' is therefore about expressing yourself without a care for anyone else - essentially, dancing like no one is watching!”
“In the music video for 'Lose It', we wanted to capture the song's sense of being uninhibited in one's self-expression through dance. We asked five dancers to audition for our next music video and perform a routine they had choreographed. However, what they didn't realise was that they were actually starring in the video amidst a troupe of dancers hiding behind a curtain. When the curtain drops to reveal the chorus dancers, you see each auditionee uncertain and surprised, but once they lose their control and inhibition they are drawn into improvising with the other dancers. The dancers were truly losing it, in every sense of the word. And it was magical to watch!”
