We posted the official one-take video for ‘Hallelujah’ a couple of weeks ago, but if there’s a track worth revisiting this is it. Check out this new, live, raw unplugged version of the track from the awesome twosome that is Oh Wonder.
Of the song, Oh Wonder says, “‘Hallelujah’ is a song of defiance that we wrote for anyone that has ever been told they can’t do something. As music-making teenagers, we were both discouraged by naysayers who declared that we would never be successful, that we weren’t good enough, and that we could never be superstars, so we should just give up. When we met each other, we bonded over our shared experiences of setbacks and near-misses, and set ourselves the highly unrealistic goal of releasing music and touring the world. After two albums and a world tour of 43 countries, we have only recently had a chance to process the last five years. ‘Hallelujah’ is a reminder to ourselves, as much as anyone else, to not care what people think of you, to work hard, be yourself and try your best. It’s our personal anthem of self-acceptance that we hope will encourage others to ‘wear their crowns,’ no matter what anyone else says.”
