Oh Wonder: Livewire

They have yet to play a gig or drop a record, but the strategy of releasing one utterly sublime track each month for the past year has clearly paid off in terms of buzz for Anthony West and Josephine Vander Gucht aka Oh Wonder. The classically trained London duo will gift their growing fan base with a self-titled debut full-length September 4; the final teaser track will be released September 1. (the album will contain a total of fifteen tracks.)

Concert dates have been been scheduled in the UK, continental Europe, the U.S. and Australia for the fall and the winter (Note: several shows are already sold out, including the four in L.A. and NYC October 5-8).

A poignant video for the superb song "Livewire" was published in May; it was directed by Mike Lee Thomas.
