Listen :: Oh Wonder - My Friends
Words: Sam Geary
Oh Wonder', the London wonder duo of Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West, release their second album ‘Ultralife’ on June 16, and after previously airing the title track and ‘Lifetimes’, they now share the atmospheric ‘My Friends’.
The pair - who play an intimate show at Omeara in London on May 10, which sold out within minutes - say of the song: “’My Friends’ was written in New York after a teary morning walking around McCarren Park in Williamsburg, where we wondered why on earth we’d decided to spend our only month off from touring in America, rather than at home in London with our family and friends.
“Touring obviously cripples 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."
