‘Simply put, the whole thing sounds fucking colossal’ ~ Pitchfork
“… an undeniable triumph” ~ Q
Today LUH release ‘$ORO’, the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming debut album Spiritual Songs For Lovers To Sing. Following its premiere on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show as his World First, the track is now available to hear on all major streaming and download services.
Described by Ellery Roberts as having a “zeitgeist dystopian club aesthetic”, ‘$ORO’ demonstrates the wide range of influences that feature on the album – taking in anthemic electronica-infused garage rock before descending into apocalyptic auto-tuned gabba.
‘$ORO’ is taken from LUH’s debut album Spiritual Songs For Lovers To Sing available for pre-order now and out on Mute on 6 May 2016. The album was produced by The Haxan Cloak (known for his own experimental compositions and work on Björk’s Vulnicura album) on the island of Osea.
Following a successful run of shows across Europe in March, LUH recently announced a fresh set of live dates, which include an appearance at London’s Field Day Festival on Saturday 11 June. Full details below.
LUH (which stands for Lost Under Heaven) is Ellery Roberts and Ebony Hoorn. Over the past two years, they have been releasing music, art, photography, film and manifestos into the world, including 2014’s ‘Unites’ video and the expansive ‘Lost Under Heaven’ music and artwork package at the end of last year.
Ellery’s name might be familiar as the frontman of WU LYF, whose raw and primal voice helped create a sound that shaped a new model for the untamed fury of youth. Ebony is an audio-visual artist based in Amsterdam, where the pair now live.
