“WU LYF is nothing, four dumb kids calling out heavy longings for a place to call home, two brothers greet two brothers and play heavy pop. I don’t feel at home in this place, like your hearts drunk on kerosene and all you need is a spark. A lil’ flare of Lucifer. And in blind faith they believe what they are told to believe and exploit your true mamma until her blood runs blue. The wind on the mountain laps tame, its wild years replaced by an air-conditioning unit, sleek and metallic, molded perfection. And in efficient regulation the people were conditioned and were told there’s no alternative son. To tell fire is to question, to bring fuel to the fires started by kids no longer blinded by spectacle glare.
So go tell fire.”

That is the call to arms by the ‘mysterious’ Wu Lyf. They have had bloggers and NME thinking about them for around a year now and next month they release their debut album Go Tell Fire To The Mountain. Zane Lowe has ahad a storming week of hottest records so far, premiering new Arcade Fire tracks and a new track from The Horrors. And ‘Fire’ was on the wireless last night and it sounds monstrous. A cacophonous drum sound is followed by a raspy Tom Waits impression. And then we get a call to revolution. This band sound like they want to mean something to a lot of people. ‘L Y F’ from the album got a video in March, which you can watch below. If you can handle the website, you can see their tour dates (no Irish dates thus far) and get a sort of biography. Warning: it’s very flashy…
