I love writing about new, up-and-coming and/or unsigned artists I like because they are the ones who need it the most. It feels nice to help them out from this humble tribune. At the same time, I like to mix and match with new music from better-known artists as well, firstly, because not all of you might know about them; secondly, because you might not be aware they got new music out; and lastly, so that this page doesn’t become so predictable or monotonous. After featuring relatively unknown acts for about 3 or 4 days in a row, I think it is time to talk about this pretty new song from Oh Wonder: Don’t You Worry.
The British duo, who are also a couple, might not be a household name yet, but with over 7 million monthly listeners on Spotify, chances are that you know about them already. In case you don’t, this alt-pop act started in 2014 when they decided to record and release one song a month for a year, songs that later became their self-titled debut album. Six years later, Oh Wonder has sold out gigs in cities like London, New York and L.A., released 3 full-length albums and several EPs. Their latest one is Home Tapes, an EP that got out one month ago and that the duo recorded and released from their London Home during the lockdown.
Don’t You Worry, which is part of Home Tapes, is a light yet beautiful indie love song about facing difficult times alongside your loved ones. It suits Josephine Vander Gucht‘s delicate but pretty voice perfectly. Give it a listen below.
