Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West are the two musicians who make up the buzzy musical duo Oh Wonder.

It all started when they posted music online, with no intention of starting a band. Vander Gucht and West just wanted to write music for other people. But their songs started to go viral and labels showed interest not just in their music, but in them as a performing duo.

Now, the duo talk to q host Tom Power about their second album, Ultralife.
