Oh Wonder interview

Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West are Oh Wonder; we asked them about the alt-(lolly)pop goodness of breakout album Ultralife. You’ve said you initially released songs on SoundCloud with the intention of pitching them to other artists. How did you navigate out of the old approach (that you were going to let your babies go to someone else) and into the new (keeping the babies)? The first album began as a writing project so our own personal lives aren’t really reflected back in any of those first 15 songs. We wrote Ultralife however, in the midst of a mammoth...
