Oh Wonder are London-based duo Anthony and Josephine. They are currently eight months into their debut project, which sees them releasing one track every month for a year on SoundCloud, culminating in an album release in September and debut live shows. All eight tracks so far have topped the Hype Machine charts and garnered over 14 million streams across SoundCloud and Spotify. The duo’s songs have been featured on the Radio 1 BBC Introducing playlist and have received significant support from Huw Stephens, Greg James and Zane Lowe (who made ‘Lose It’ his ‘Next Hype’), plus support from XFM in the form of their Great X-Pectations and playlist.
Oh Wonder was initially created as an outlet for Anthony & Josephine to showcase and challenge their songwriting skills. Both admirers of the art of composing a song, they wanted each of their album tracks to stand alone and be heard in their own right. This inadvertently innovative approach to releasing music, with its disregard for the typical album campaign, has garnered substantial interest from an international audience who eagerly await each month’s song, much akin to the release structure of television series. Consequently there is real anticipation every four weeks for the next musical instalment.
Anthony & Josephine are classically trained multi-instrumentalists who write, produce and mix their tracks together in their home studio in South East London. The pair take much inspiration from city life and aim to harness the diverse, energetic yet sometimes lonely nature of London in their music.
