Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West have been writing, recording and singing simmering R&B-influenced pop tunes in unison ever since forming Oh Wonder three years ago in London, writing a song a week. Their self-titled debut studio release (stream it below)—filled with what AllMusic dubs “unified-sounding, thoroughly mellow, wistful collection of bedroom keyboard-and-drum-machine tunes”—came out in 2015. Oh Wonder (above, performing “Drive”) returned this summer with their second full-length, Ultralife (stream it below), which received high praise. “What is so delightfully refreshing about this London duo is the utter effortlessness of their music,” says Rolling Stone. “This dreamy, polished album is a winner.” And currently working their way south from Canada, Oh Wonder play Brooklyn Steel on Tuesday and Wednesday. Singer-songwriter-poet-performer Jaymes Young opens both shows.
