Under The Influence presents
Lost Under Heaven
Two years after the 2012 disbandment of WU LYF, frontman Ellery James Robert formed a new group called Lost Under Heaven (LUH) with Ebony Hoorn. The duo released its debut album, Spiritual Songs for Lovers to Sing, in 2016 to wide acclaim. Now, after a bit of radio silence, LUH. is back to share a new song.
Dubbed “The Breath of Light”, it’s a fragile number led by Roberts’ impassioned howl. When both members’ voices intertwine toward the end, the result is nothing short of haunting.
“If ya’ll still with me, I am going to begin to break this radio silence. Last year passed in constant flux, dancing from revelation to amnesia, engagement to disillusionment, sober clarity, and sedated confusion… it was a year of upheaval, uncertainty, but all finds its eventual resolution. I sit here type typing with calm confidence all will come to be. Ammunition’s been a-piling up for months, lookin’ forwards to getting out blazin’, time to sing these lovers’ songs again.”

The Residents Association
Hull DJs from nights large and small, playing short, back to back sets of the best tunes across a variety of genres!
Doors 8 pm
They were Hull’s very own indie rockers. With a string of top 40 singles during the early 90s Kingmaker burst on to the scene as contemporaries of the Pixies and the The Wonder Stuff before splitting just as Brit-pop gripped the nation.
Now after a successful return to the music scene in 2017 drummer John Andrew and bassist, Myles Howell are back for 2018 to rip through those Kingmaker favourites one more time. Joined by Mike Wright (Bonnitts and Dephot) and Matt Edible (Matt Edible & The Obtuse Angels) on vocals and guitar, Kingmaker are celebrating 25 years since their best known hits 10 Years Asleep and Queen Jane broke into the charts.
Anyone who saw their blistering set at Humber Street Sesh last year won’t want to miss out on the chance to hear those 90s classics one more time. From Lucy’s Down and High as a Kite to Really Scrape the Sky, Kingmaker guarantee you an evening of blistering guitar and drum-based indie stomp. Dust off your Doc Martins and see them right back where they started!
Andy Acum of the classic club night Menagerie will be spinning tunes.
