To us, climate change needs to be at the forefront of the agenda for politicians and world leaders. Following the unorthodox release of their eponymous debut album, which saw the duo release one track a month over the space of a year, alt-pop pair guide us through their forthcoming sophomore release Ultralife, in which inspirations range far and wide; from climate change, to bizarre interactions on the tube. Now more than ever we need to focus not on money, power, or undermining social groups, but on celebrating equality, fighting for human rights and justice and making it about everyone. We have certainly listened to songs at moments of abandonment, and found hope and comfort in them. That song is the best on the album precisely because of its harsher sound, with vocal distortion and spaced-out twang building steadily into something intricate and evocative. We also wanted to address the relentless demand for technological progress and consumption, which is also contributing to the devastation of our planet. They were happily going back and forth discussing their favourite foods.
The singles that has been released have been amazing and their coachella performance was mind blowing. News of the album comes just after the announcement that their debut album will be getting released on vinyl nearly two years after its initial release. Ultralife is out 14 July via Island Records.

I remember listening to Anthony when he was part of We The Wild and I thought they were really great, when that project ended I was really sad but the stumbled upon Oh Wonder and when I realized that was Anthony I was mind blown. Later in the year, they returned to their hometown of London after a year of touring the world, and wrote the second half of the record.

In the relationship you felt lonely and inadequate, and out of the relationship you are tinged with nostalgia and regret and trying to persuade the other person that you were right for each other. As humans we are constantly flip-flopping between the need for our own independence and self-nourishment, versus the endless demands of socialising and staying connected to the world via social media, emails and the internet. We wanted to call the album Ultralife, as this is the kind of life that music allows us all to live. I love how much they have grown. Maximalism looks good on them.
Touring obviously guts your social life, and this song is a little admission of how out of touch we feel with the people we love back home, and a plea of sorts to remember us whilst we are travelling around the world. It made me really happy to know that he continued doing music. Overall, more is definitively more when it comes to. The chorus is a joyous mass of jig-like strings and percussion.

Change can only be effected if we work together and share our ideas with each other. We need people in our lives.
