Oh Wonder have shared a new video for “True Romance”, the track is available today via Island Records and DSPs. The duo drop their new album, 22 Make, on July 22nd. The single follows single ‘Magnificent’ and “Fuck it I Love You”. Currently on d tour, Oh Wonder recently played a sold-out homecoming show at London’s Brixton Academy.
Directed by Alex Michael Kennedy and Tim Toda in the US, the video for “True Romance” is an intimate and cinematic window into the world of Oh Wonder: charting the journey from morning to night, and from the band’s relationship off-stage to connecting with their
’22 Make’ unpicks a turbulent period in the incredible story of Oh Wonder. Its first half, ’22 Break’, dropped with little warning towards the end of 2021: here were universal themes (loneliness, inadequacy, resentment, fears for the future) as experienced by one couple in real-time, all blown up in the pandemic. Not many bands can make a break-up album that culminates in them tying the knot – but then again. Coming out of ‘22 Break’ and all the soul-searching that it forced them to do, Josephine and Anthony got married and channelled all this into ’22 Make’: a whole new album soundtracking the light at the end of a tunnel.
“When we nearly broke up during the pandemic, we used music as a way out,” Oh Wonder write, introducing the project in its entirety recently. “We wrote all our pain, sadness and confusion into a collection of songs that we eventually released as the album, ‘22 Break’. But for us, that was only half of the story. We managed to survive our rocky patch, and emerge stronger than ever and full of love for each other. It only felt right therefore, to write about the other side, where you realise not just that you’re meant for each other, but also that it also takes two people to make a love flourish. We are thrilled to be releasing ‘22 Make’, an album full of love and life-affirming songs that reflect on fate, gratitude and being there for someone.”
