Oh Wonder with Sasha Sloan

Oh Wonder: English alternative pop duo, based in London. They rose to fame through Soundcloud, in which they had decided to post an original song every month, beginning on 1 September 2014. Each song was written, recorded, produced and mixed by the duo in their home studio in South-East London. These monthly installations culminated a year later in the release of their self-titled album, which also included two unreleased songs. Sasha Sloan: Boston-born, LA-based pop maverick Sasha Sloan is steadily building up a stockpile of emotionally-rich, left-of-center pop that showcases a massive new talent. The first display of this talent came with last October's ‘Ready Yet’, a deceptively subtle, gently pulsating earworm produced by Diplo associate King Henry, with over 11 million Spotify plays and counting. Now follows the sweetly melancholic new single ‘Normal’, its confessional, catchy chorus is set to become an anthem for introverts everywhere. These two, along with four other tracks, come together to make up Sasha’s debut EP, sad girl, released this spring via RCA Records. “I wanted to put out a blueprint for who I am, because I'm still figuring it out myself,” she says of the EP.
