Ultralife is the new single from London-based duo, Oh Wonder.
Ultralife begins with a few chords on the keyboard accompanied by the soft vocals of Josephine who is then joined by Anthony as the song slowly builds into an electronic infused chorus. Their delicate harmonies sound effortless as they compliment each other completely as you are whisked away in their ethereal tone.
This latest single does not disappoint as it only demonstrates the abundant talent from Oh Wonder. Not only have they produced a song suitable for multiple occasions, Ultralife is multi-dimensional. The lyrics are ingenious and the more you listen the more you realise this – it’s infectious. Not forgetting to mention the production of this track, throughout the song another level is subtly laid down creating a dreamily entwined sound.
Ultralife is more upbeat than many of their previous works, creating a summery vibe. However, it does not stray too far from their slower-moving chill out songs as you can still recognise Oh Wonder’s formula that works so well to create those chill-out tunes.
