Let’s kick it old school shall we? No fancy lists, hooks, Justin Bieber references today – just a good old fashioned post about a song I cannot stop listening to. Oh Wonder is songwriting duo Anthony West and Josephine Vander Gucht, and together they make sparkling, etherial, entrancing music. Their self-titled debut was released in September, and trust me, it’s goooood.
But in an effort to stay to true to my roots, let me draw your attention to one song in particular – Drive.
I feel like if there was a feelings equivalent of onomatopoeia this song is it. Titled “Drive” and with lyrics that talk about driving, it instantly gives that “on the road” feeling (no ties to Kerouac). And in case you hadn’t heard of Oh Wonder until now, I’d say this is a pretty good crash course in their overall sound – soft, gentle melody, rolling rhythms and a building chorus. I mean really – what else can you want?
