If you’re memory is half decent this morning, Monday morning – so unlikely, but if it is; you may remember that Oh Wonder’s new track ‘High On Humans’ was inspired by a certain trip on the tube. (Quot below, cos we pity you).
“‘High On Humans’ was inspired by a tube journey. On the way back from Heathrow Airport, I eavesdropped on a conversation between two girls who worked in a sunglasses shop at the terminal. They were happily going back and forth discussing their favourite foods. When one girl declared that she didn’t like avocados, I rudely interrupted and said ‘what do you mean you don’t like avocados?!’. We then proceeded to have a twenty minute conversation about hot sauces and condiments, and the three of us exited the carriage high on adrenaline having connected with strangers”. – Josephine.
So the premise for the new video for the track isn’t that much of a surprised as it sees the band take on some activities with a group of strangers. Josephine said of the vid “This song celebrates the potential to ‘get high’ and feel liberated by talking to strangers. It’s something we all fear, and something we should all do more of!”
So get prepared for eye-contact games, high fives and ferret births… yes. Ferret. Births.
