As the release of their debut album Spiritual Songs For Lovers To Sing draws nearer (out on 6 May 2016 on Mute) today LUH reveal the video for their latest single ‘Beneath The Concrete’.
This video is directed by the LUH’s own Ebony Hoorn and features her and Ellery Roberts performing the song in front of a pulsing loop of distorted digital landscapes and an illuminated mass of hooded figures.
Check out the video for ‘Beneath The Concrete’ here.
‘Beneath The Concrete’ is taken from LUH’s debut album Spiritual Songs For Lovers To Sing available for pre-order now and out on 6 May 2016 on Mute. 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.
