LUH – Unites

The last time I saw Ellery James Roberts, we were colliding into each other at a Kult Country gig down at the SWAYS Bunker. I broke my wrist that night, and I really didn’t have a care in the world. I honestly can’t remember feeling like that since… Manchester has been missing a spark, a fire… and Ellery’s return could not have been better timed. Now releasing under the name LUH (Lost Under Heaven), Unites feels like a natural progression from his debut solo material Kerou’s Lament. There is something very impassioned, conflicted within his soul and you can hear the vulnerability in that distinctive gravelly voice. Guitar melodies playfully repeat themselves, but always moving forward together, tiny musical collisions with an explosive ending.
