Looking at a record of electronic pop acts performing in Bangkok this past year, one couldn’t help thinking it’s only a matter of time before fan favourite Oh Wonder follow suit. And wonder no more, as the the British pair will finally make their debut in the city this August.
Bangkok promoter Viji Corp (Death Cab For Cutie, Simple Plan) announced in a short Facebook post today Oh Wonder are performing on Tuesday, August 1 at DND Club.
Tickets, priced at THB2,000, will go on sale through Thai Ticket Major on May 31 (10am). The show is the only Asia date announced for the melodic duo’s 2017 tour so far, following a string of dates in Australia.
Formed in 2014, Oh Wonder are Anthony West and Josephine Vander Gucht. They’re best known for “Drive”, “Landslide” and “Without You” from their 2015 self-titled debut album. Their followup, Ultralife, is set to be released on June 17. It takes the hallmarks of the band’s perennial first record and adds the weight of experience, the confidence of success and the coherence that comes from forward planning. Here’s the first single, “Ultralife”
