Go Tell Fire To The Mountain

LYF Recordings


Released: 13th Jun 2011




out of stock

having shunned the advances of the hottest record labels, manchester’s wu lyf – one of the most talked about bands of the moment – finally release their debut album on their own label. recorded live in a disused church in manchester & mastered in glasgow by paul savage (mogwai), the result is 10 tracks of huge uncompromising heavy pop. take the shoutiness & intensity of the walkmen, wolf parade’s indie rock immensity, chiming post rock guitars, clattering instrumentation, a good dose of reverb & echo, driving percussion, funereal organ, math-rock flourishes, urgent drums & the band-defining guttural, raw delivery of ellery roberts & the wu lyf sound is ready to blast you with its enormity. this confident 4-piece have undoubtedly delivered one of the defining albums of 2011. “a triumph” 9.5/10 – the 405, “honest, heart-felt, sky-kissing indie” 8/10 – nme.
