London duo WONDER WONDER is now OH WONDER and I am still just as intrigued as I was before the name change. The writing pair is three songs in on their plan to release new songs every month for the next year, one of my favorite ways to get to know a new artist by the way, and I like what I am hearing so far. “Dazzle” is their latest to receive some air time and has garnered them some much deserved attention recently. And it brings my ears and my whole attention to a solid trio of tracks I find easily appealing in their own distinct ways. For me, “Body Gold” sets the bar pretty high and is my favorite of the bunch so far.
OH WONDER has a down-tempo style that I find mysteriously addicting and “Body Gold” fully embodies this trait. After each time through, all I want to do is play the song over again. And again. And that’s a very good thing. I love how the vocals seem to lay on top of each other, one on the high-end and the other on the low. Producing a soothing multilayered sound that fully envelopes me. I like how I can feel the emotion behind the well written lyrics, as if I am listening to a story unraveling right in front of me. OH WONDER has won me over with “Body Gold” and I know I am not the only one. And I look forward to hearing a lot more!
