Oh Wonder – Ultralife

The listener can spend almost a whole luxurious hour in Ultralife.

Oh Wonder’s album is a smooth trip through, a feeling of having no bumps at all. It is light, it is silky and it is almost a creamy mix of shades, blended with artistry and spread around the listener, not invading the space between the listeners ears but rather becoming it.

Voices mix without overpowering each other, nothing draws attention to itself, moving from one to the next the combined music is subtle like the colours in a rainbow, bleeding into each other so that the colours are distinct but inseparable.

This album is beautiful in its own interior logic. Its parts match each other so well that they are hard to fathom apart, it is a strain so lovely that it leaves no trace when it is no longer playing.
