Lost Under Heaven is the Manchester-based duo of Ebony Hoorn and Ellery James Roberts (former WU LYF). Two years after their first full-length Spiritual Songs for Lovers to Sing, they announced the release of their sophomore album. Love Hates What You Become is out tomorrow via Mute Records. We already shared “Post Millenial Tension”; “COME” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video below.
The band wrote the album in Ellery’s native Manchester before travelling to Los Angeles to record with producer John Congleton, known for his Grammy-winning work with St. Vincent, Swans, Explosions in the Sky and Sigur Rós. Congleton introduced the band to Swans drummer Thor Harris, who plays on the record. “We were without a drummer or a real band,” explains Ellery. “I just concentrated on writing the songs rather than making a sound. We turned up in LA with that as our starting point, this collection of Guitar & Piano demos that I’d sent through.”
