Oh Wonder – High On Humans | New Music


Back after their returning single, ‘Ultralife,” Oh Wonder are back with their new single, “High On Humans” from their forthcoming second album, Ultralife.


Let me tell you this, “High On Humans” is a definite anthem for the summer. Showcasing the duo’s stellar vocals and undeniable musical chemistry, “High On Humans” is a catchy, head-bopping and fast-pace alternative/indie number.


It’s a slight shift from their last single which, although retaining those trademark harmonies, is a little softer. However, “High On Humans” showcases a lot more force and excited chaos that packs a lot of adrenaline and rapidity into the verses.


Speaking about the inspiration behind the new single, leading lady, Josephine explains after being inspired by a conversation she had eavesdropped into between two girls on the tube where one protested their hate for Avocados, Josephine rightfully exclaims:


“what do you mean you don’t like avocados?!’. We then proceeded to have a twenty minute conversation about hot sauces and condiments, and the three of us exited the carriage high on adrenaline having connected with strangers.”


“I then went on to talk to a man who had knocked all his teeth out and was covered in blood. It created a carriage-wide conversation about injuries and operations. Everyone’s mood seemed lifted by this random interaction with the unknown. On the way back home from the station, I sang ‘I’m getting high on humans’ into voice notes on my phone, and sat down with Anthony to fully write it the next day.”


I can see why, when listening to this track, that there seems to be a lot of euphoria and excitement in the melody. Josephine explains, “This song celebrates the potential to ‘get high’ and feel liberated by talking to strangers. It’s something we all fear, and something we should all do more of!


Maybe we should all listen to the duo’s wise words.
