London based pop duo, Anthony West and Josephine Vander, aka Oh Wonder, is all set to perform live on Vh1’s Instagram page on April 20. They will perform for the very first time for the Indian audience.

“We are very excited to perform for our fans in India for the first time. In the absence of being able to play shows and tours around the world, surely this will be the next best thing. It’s such a positive way for people to feel connected and comforted in these strange times,” the duo says while sharing their excitement.

Starting from 2014 till September 2015, the duo released their songs together with one single every month. Their second album, Ultralife, which came out in 2017, made people fond of their unique vocal unison.

For Monday’s concert, the duo plans to play the tracks of their latest release from their new project, Home Tapes, without losing touch with some of their best older songs.

Going out to a studio is the most difficult thing, they say, “We will probably host the livestream in our home studio which is at the end of our garden here in London. It’s where we wrote and recorded our third album, so it will be super special to perform a livestream from there,” said the pop artists. They will also host a Q&A, chat after the songs and take some song requests as well.

With the outbreak of COVID-19, people are under stress and anxiety. The duo, therefore, wants people to feel comforted by their music. “We hope our songs act as a reminder that everyone is going through this difficult time together, and stress and anxiety is completely normal and understandable. We have written songs about this, being in lockdown for our new ‘Home Tapes’ project: ‘Lonely Star’ is about feeling lonely, and our new song ‘Keep on Dancing’ is about celebrating a birthday on your own,” they share.

Livestreams come with a certain amount of limitations such as the artists and audience do not experience each other in real. Therefore, telling us how the duo is preparing for the performance, they say, “A livestream will never be the same as a big performance in a venue, but we have to play to the beauty of a small concert from our home and to let people into our world for a moment. We have found that livestreams are a lot more honest, vulnerable and chill --- it’s less of a show and more of a hangout, as you can’t hide behind lights and production.”
