iTunes Review

England’s enigmatic WU LYF (World Unite Lucifer Youth Foundation, anyone?) pulls off an interesting feat: it merges a roar of discontent with a reassuring embrace, telling us that even though the world is messed up, everything will be okay: we will survive! Singer Ellery Roberts’ sandpapered yelp is similar to Future Island’s Samuel Herring, but Roberts is 90% indecipherable, which doesn’t deter fans from singing along, fists raised in solidarity with whatever it is he’s singing about. (When Roberts yowls a simple phrase like “I wanna feel at home,” it sounds more like “Whaa-fill-ay-yo!”) Actually, the magic of Roberts’ delivery is that an attuned listener quickly gets the gist of his message from the smashing crescendos, mercurial organ notes, and the fluttering guitar chords that go from reedy, chiming solemnity to chatty uplift between bridge and chorus. This isn’t date-night indie pop (though the joyful “We Bros” hints at it); it’s disillusioned protest music, an emotional steam-letting tool, a personal Monday morning resentment soundtrack. Don't be surprised if you end up growling along, waving your Bic lighter in the car on the way to work.

Exceeds expectations

Definitely a fantastic album! And you also get the challenge of figuring out the lyrics before you see them at a show! haha.

Hype

It's ok. They sound really reminiscent of Wilderness imho...I'd rather just listen to them instead. And the production isn't all that great, the drums kinda sound bad. All hype if you ask me.

BRILLIANT

World Unite Lucifer Youth Foundation. What more can I say, this album is brilliant, I have been following them since they were releasing demos. This is deinitely the icing on the cake. My personal favs are "14 Crowns For Me & your friends" and Heavy Pop. They have an ambient yet darkening enlightenment about them.

Biography

Formed: 2008 in Manchester, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The mysterious Manchester, England group WU LYF (pronounced “woo life,” short for World Unite! Lucifer Youth Foundation) shrouded itself with secrecy. The members went by aliases such as Lung and Elle Jaie, and the band’s Wikipedia page was deleted several times. However, WU LYF's music was unmistakable, an impassioned yet eerie style they dubbed “heavy pop” that recalled Modest Mouse's jittery rhythms and the Arcade Fire's anthemic soar. The band was the brainchild of vocalist/keyboardist Elle Jaie...
