Oh Wonder - "White Blood"

Oh Wonder - "White Blood"

Oh Wonder has given me a reason to look forward to the first of the month since last September, and I usually relish the opportunity to write about their latest songs. With today's release, "White Blood", I am going to leave it to the band's description,

Earlier this year we had the pleasure of meeting Steven and Wendi, our fans - and now friends, from the US. They are both remarkable people - generous, warm-hearted and so spirited. Steven is a doctoral student at MIT, and after a voluntary academic scan he discovered a baseball-sized cancerous brain tumour, which was successfully removed after a 10-hour awake brain surgery. We are humbled to have collaborated with Steven on the artwork for our forthcoming single, โ€˜White Bloodโ€™. The image is a very zoomed-in image of part of his brain tumour, photographed under a microscope by the man himself!

We wrote โ€˜White Bloodโ€™ to explore the idea of needing immunity from disease, sadness, hopelessness or fear, not only in the physical form of white blood cells, but also with simple human love and support. This song is for you, Steven and Wendi, and for anyone else out there that is dealing with difficult physical or mental health circumstances. We are all here for each other.
