What I Heard This Morning: WU LYF

Prefix posted a video earlier today for the single, “Dirt,” from WU LYF's upcoming album, Go Tell Fire to the Mountain. While Prefix acknowledges These New Puritans as a base, I hear some Mark Stewart Maffia/Pop Group relatable dub influences and vocals. The midway influx of bass energy prompted me to even spotlight this single. Not that the percussive sections aren’t powerful, but once the song thickens musically it becomes something more.



They have another single called "Heavy Pop," which seems to work well as a descriptor.



Sincerely,
Letters From A Tapehead
