New Music: Oh Wonder - Lose It (Video)
From my favourite record of 2015 (read why by clicking here) comes a new video for the song Lose It. The concept is pretty simple - some dancers audition in front of the band. The twist is that the curtain behind the dancers hides a troop of dancers, ticker tape cannons and giant inflatable balls…..Surprise!!!
As the curtain drops the audition participants are encouraged to carry on. The lyrics: “Move your feet and feel it in the space between, you gotta give yourself a moment, let your body be, we gotta lose it, we gotta lose it,” being given a very visual interpretation on the world wide web. The band have also made a point in saying that these dancers were actually auditioning, they're not actors – the reactions you see are genuine and, like everything Oh Wonder seem to do, rather lovely.
Away from the internet the Oh Wonder success story continues in the real world, with the band playing sold out shows across the US (unfortunately due to the heavy snow storms they’ve had to cancel their gig in Washington DC tonight, but it will be rescheduled). Then they return to their home country of the UK in March for what will almost inevitably be more full to capacity gigs.
