Despite the fact that solid information on Wu Lyf is exceedingly scarce, they’re the type of band I feel I know better than half the bands whose middle names and favourite TV shows I could find on their myspace pages in a matter of minutes. For one thing, they’re genuinely different from anything else around right now. They’re a band who seem to willingly defy and avoid any sense of definition; the most unwilling of rock stars. But for a group so determined for mystery and behaviour that seems to only perpetuate their legend, their elusiveness only serves to shoot down the idea that it’s all a gimmick. And if that isn’t enough, the music should speak for itself because what Wu Lyf have is something truly special: tortured, melancholic and absolutely mesmerizing. I couldn’t recommend it enough.

WU LYF-spitting it concrete like the golden sun god from LUCIFER YOUTH FOUNDATION on Vimeo.

That was cool. I thought that this was gonna be like a group of white kids pretending to be the Wu Tang Clan and calling themselves Wu Lyf at first though. Can't tell you how glad I am it's not.

that was cool. It's not like they're that different from everything else around right now though, not sure where you see that. Video was... erm, okay.

I can't tell if I like this a lot. Need more songs to put this in context. Sounds like it could be one of those songs where they hit all the right notes and then try to recapture that on a long-player.

"that was cool. It's not like they're that different from everything else around right now though, not sure where you see that. Video was... erm, okay." - i didn't mean specifically the music keelan, i meant the whole aura.

no idea unfortunately (i wouldn't be surprised if they just started selling it at shows one day and didn't tell anybody) but i got my hands on their 12" for 15 pounds yesterday off my friends sister

absolute steal, it went at shows for 50

Music is really really cool (although, like Keelan, I wouldn't say it's different from everything else around right now). Gonna take me a while to get used to those vocals though.

i didn't specifically mean the music is different to anything else, i meant they're a different sort of band. reclusive, vaguely iconic, etc, just unwillingly cool as fuck

great song, bizzare (but awesome) video

I'll keep my eyes and ears peeled for these guys. Thanks, Kiran!

i've kinda got an anti-boner for weird image stunts, and i don't think being elusive makes it less gimmicky; it's exactly what builds hype nowadays and i doubt they'll be amorphous for long. also 50 pounds a record... is that normal? doesn't make me like the song less but it doesn't make me like it more

their song 'heavy pop' is really good, one of my favorite tracks of 2010

I NEED to find a place to 'obtain' this album. Ever since my friend showed me this its been stuck in my head. I thought it was going to be hip hop too.

there is no album but theres a pretty easy to find mediafire link with a shitload of wu lyf songs

thebhoy

yeah I know you meant the entire package Kirgy, I just don't think they're that much different from a lot of other bands. Song is still cool, though. The video just seemed like they were trying to say something but then just looked stupid.

this song is so good, same with the other few tracks of their's i found on mediafire. hopefully they put out a full-length this year

MrCalum

Ah, there's an 'Untitled' album under their sputnik profile. But yeah I've found a couple of mediafire songs! cool stuff, they do remind me of a few bands but its still a good sound.
