It's a little jarring to see Oh Wonder
act all somber, since they are probably the most bubbly people we've ever met
, but here they are, acting all somber, and oh my god, it works.
It totally works. They have just released a new song, "My Friends," and with it they take a stab at a gut-churning, heart-breaking stillness displayed with nothing but a magnificent chord progression and Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West's gorgeous harmonies. It's Friday in the office and we're trying to hold back our tears.
The song is off of the duo's upcoming sophomore album Ultralife
out June 16th.
