Simply stated, Nick Harrison and Toby Couling are a London New Cross based writing/production duo; two friends who shared a common love for 60s songwriting/ “NO FAT” pop music, groove and synthesizers. The pair formed WOWH in Forest Hill and have been periodically releasing a string of singles comprised of melodic synth pop and a rekindled old time feel. Released in early February, “The Hits,” was mixed by the ever talented Matt Wiggins (Florence & The Machine/Adele/MIA) and features 4 minutes of danceable pop carried by its catchy hook. The accompanying music video centers around a hyperbolic boxing match which surprisingly manages to capture the song’s lighthearted feel even amidst the violence and gore.
Wait for the synthy breakdown at 2:35, it’s extra tasty and leads into a heavier final hook.
