WU LYF is an abbreviation for World Unite Lucifer Youth Foundation. Hailing from Manchester, they are currently riding a wave of media attention fueled by their apparent disregard for anything related to standard music industry values. Their sound is a whirlwind of reverb-drenched guitars, muffled drums and and exuberant, hoarse vocals – the revitalized essence of a long lost rock 'n' roll. With a string of viral videos, scattered mp3s and a debut release with limited edition of fourteen copies, their astute image management recalls the propaganda campaigns from the glory days of their hometown's own Factory Records.
WU LYF songs are anthemic, euphoric, bombastic and shamanistic all at once – stadium rock for a subterranean parking garage. Can they live up to all the hype? See for yourself.
