In an era in which pop careers require careful planning, Oh Wonder are an anomaly. They’re a band formed by accident not design, a duo who didn’t intend to play live but spent more than a year touring the world, and a major label act who never saw this being anything other than a DIY project.
 
Ultralife is both Oh Wonder’s extraordinary second album and their debut proper. Its eponymously-titled predecessor, released in late 2015, was a collection of songs they had posted online at the rate of one a month, which millions of listeners fell in love with.
 
Ultralife’s luminescent lead single and title track sums up Oh Wonder’s new-found self-assurance and vaulting ambition. Easily the most up-tempo song they’ve ever released, it’s a slinky, sensual, piano and beats-driven burst of pure joy itching to soundtrack the start of summer. The albums second single, “High On Humans” is a track that finds new pertinence in the world today, describing the extraordinary power of interaction with everyday people.
