Oh Wonder have shared a documentary on the making of ‘Ultralife’

The synth-pop pair released their second album last week.

Last week, Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West, aka Oh Wonder, released their much-anticipated new album ‘Ultralife’ – but did you ever want to get a glimpse of what happened behind the scenes?

Well, you can! The pair have shared a new, hour-long documentary that takes you into the studio with Oh Wonder during the making of the record. Directed by Mike Lee Thomas, it gives an insight into the processes the pair went through to make their bolder second record, whether that was in the studio or at home. It’s a lovingly crafted look into their world.

This summer, Oh Wonder will be playing at festivals such as Sziget and Pukkelpop, but they’ll also be returning to the UK and Ireland in October and November. They’ll be playing in Manchester, Dublin, Glasgow, Birmingham, Norwich, Bristol and London as part of their blimmin’ massive world tour. Tickets are on sale now.
