WU LYF ("World Unite! Lucifer Youth Foundation") are a band from Manchester, England that are best known for creating a mystery about themselves by declining requests for interviews and not releasing much information to the press.

Much of the press coverage on the band has focused on the fact that they do not know much about the band. The New York Observer described the phenomenon as "carefully designed anonymity". As one critic said, "Wu Lyf’s biggest selling point is the ability to maintain mystique at a time when everything is out in the open". NME has picked the band as one that is likely to define 2011. They were described as "The cult band of the moment in England" by Rolling Stone magazine. The Dutch magazine Kicking the Habit described them as sounding like "Tom Waits in a church under the guidance of stoned garage". « hide
