Out of the ashes of WU LYF has (slowly) risen LUH. Almost four years after his prior band’s disbandment, frontman Ellery James Roberts is ready to unleash his new project with audio-visual artist Ebony Hoorn onto the world. The duo’s debut, Spiritual Songs for Lovers to Sing, is officially out May 6th via Mute.
Earlier this year, the record was teased with “I&I”. Now, LUH is back with the LP’s second single, “Beneath the Concrete”. Fans of WU LYF will recognize the driving nature of the new track, although it’s built on a far more electronic foundation. Drum machines and synth reverberations send shockwaves through the track, giving Roberts a different type of base for his growling, scratchy vocals, perhaps more intelligible here than on anything before. “All we are is just people trying to live,” he sings out. “Trying to live a life means something/ Trying to live a life means something more.”
