This is Anthony West and Josephine Vander Gucht — aka London-based duo Oh Wonder.

Together they make the kind of delicate, R&B-inflected pop music that makes dark winter days a little brighter.

Recently, the band invited a handful of dancers to "try out" for a starring role in their "Lose It" music video.

The auditions were fake, but the dancers didn't know that.

They were surprised mid-way through their prepared routines with confetti canons and a line of back-up dancers.

"We wanted to capture the song's sense of being uninhibited in one's self-expression through dance," the band told BuzzFeed Music in an email.

"When the curtain drops to reveal the chorus dancers, you see each auditionee uncertain and surprised," they continued, "but once they lose their control and inhibition they are drawn into improvising with the other dancers."
