This very mysterious writing duo from London have not revealed much about themselves apart from one song every month since the beginning of September. “Body Gold” was released on the 1st of September and “Shark” is released today (October 1), both of the tracks have a very similar sound and overall relaxed feel to them. Can’t help but think of The xx when I listen to them – both bands leave their songs stripped back with simple melodies and instrumentation.
Unique to Wonder Wonder’s style is how they layer up their vocals, the female’s voice being clear and crisp while the male’s voice is more in the background with a crackly, phone-call sort sound. This technique adds a lot of texture to both tracks. I’m intrigued to hear their next track due to be released on the 1st of November this year! Here’s their new single “Shark” in the mean time.
