For as long as there have been lovers, lovers have serenaded each other.
And for as long as there have been Gods, mortals have serenaded them, too.
In that sense, Lost Under Heaven’s debut ‘Spiritual Songs For Lovers To Sing’ is familiar, but as a whole – an album, a band, and a concept – it’s something totally fresh; a record built on ideas not influences, and it is as powerful and passionate as anything you’ll hear this year.
Lost Under Heaven is Ellery Roberts and Ebony Hoorn, the lovers of the title. Ellery’s name might be familiar as the frontman of WU LYF, the incendiary Manchester four-piece whose rhetoric, imagery and solitary album described a new model for the untamed fury of youth.
