Oh Wonder - 22 Make

While it’s not exactly straying too far from familiar sonic territory for the duo, it’s a heart-warming sentiment all the same.

Oh Wonder - 22 Make
It’s no secret that the pandemic put strains on relationships of all kinds. So it’s perhaps not all too surprising to hear that Oh Wonder - real-life couple Anthony and Josephine Vander West - found themselves facing those kind of issues after the pair had to grapple with a new kind of life together after their hefty touring schedule disappeared over night. It was this experience - and their subsequent near-break up - that became the foundation for last year’s fragile ‘22 Break’. But - as you may have guessed from their identical surnames - things turned out alright in the end; enter ’22 Make’, a companion record telling the flip-side to the former’s story. Unsurprisingly, it’s a record that’s filled with the warmth and reassurance of enduring love, and while it’s not exactly straying too far from familiar sonic territory for the duo - glitchy electronics still play a major role - it’s a heart-warming sentiment all the same.
