Come get Lost Under Heaven….
Lost Under Heaven are a relatively new band. But you might of heard of the band they emerged from, World Unite Lucifer Youth Foundation, or WU LYF for short.
A product of the Manchester music scene, singer Ellery James Roberts left to join his girlfriend, Ebony Hoorn, in Amsterdam and Lost Under Heaven was born.
And it was there that their first album was also made, the acclaimed Spiritual Songs For Lovers To Sing. That was in 2016, and things have once again changed, but in a good way. A move back to Ellery’s home city of Manchester happened, and the basis for the new album, Love Hates What You Become, was created.
The embryonic thoughts came in Amsterdam in 2016, with Black Sun Rising. An ecological piece of graduation work, undertaken by Hoorn, at the renowned Rietveld Art Academy in Amsterdam. It’s all part of the 10 song strong new album, which is going to be released in January 2019.
I had the pleasure of watching Lost Under Heaven at the 40th anniversary celebration of their label, Mute, when they supported fellow Manchester musicians, and legends, A Certain Ratio. And I was immediately taken by them, Roberts has a tremendous vocal range, and Hoorn has the musical talent in bucket loads. Duos have been quite popular over the years, Royal Blood and The White Stripes for example, and there is absolutely no reason why Lost Under Heaven shouldn’t join that list. Of course, you’ll get to know a bit more about them here at Flick Of The Finger.
In the meantime, allow yourself the pleasure of watching the video for a song off Love Hates What You Become, and it is For The Wild.
