The London alternative duo, Oh Wonder, decided to add their own tweak of playfulness in the “auditions” they hosted for their new music video “Lose It.” The pair stated, “We invited five dancers to audition for our music video. What they didn’t know was that they were actually starring in the video! Watch below to see what happens…”

“Lose It” is a mellow-tempo R&B infused track that hovers around in both acoustic and pop soundscapes as the vocals of Josephine Gucht and Anthony West march together, rather than interchangeably. Their croons stand at the front line, smoothing out the tune of the ballad and building a silently placating mood. The duo released their self-titled debut record back in September of last year are on tour now:
