A startling, thought-provoking record, Love Hates What You Become follows Lost Under Heaven’s 2016 debut, Spiritual Songs For Lovers To Sing. Shot full of incisive social commentary, Love Hates What You Become captures the Manchester-based audio/visual duo - comprised of Dutch artist Ebony Hoorn and British vocalist Ellery James Roberts - at their most musically raw and visceral.

The band wrote the album in Manchester before
traveling 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 also 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.”

Those demos included some of the most accomplished songwriting of his career to date, such as momentous album closer ‘For The Wild’. “I started writing that song years ago almost as a pastiche of trying to write real this rock ’n’ roll saviour,” he reminisces. “The rock ’n’ roll revolutionary feels such a culturally irrelevant cliché now, we’re living in a mechanised world seemingly indifferent to the longings of the human soul.”
