Lost Under Heaven (aka LUH) Share Bloody Video for New Song “Bunny’s Blues”

Band Announce U.K. Tour Dates

Lost Under Heaven (who were formerly known mainly by their initials LUH) have shared a new song, "Bunny's Blues," via its bloody video. It follows "Breath of Light," a new song they shared back in March (it was one of our Songs of the Week). The band has also announced some new U.K. tour dates. Check out the video and dates below.

There's no word on if there's a forthcoming EP or album. The duo is Ellery James Roberts (the ex-WU LYF frontman) and Ebony Hoorn. They released their debut album, Spiritual Songs for Lovers to Sing, back in 2016 via Mute.

Hoorn directed the "Bunny's Blues" video and takes lead vocals on the song. She had this to say about the song and video in a press release from their label Mute: "With this song I present an alter ego. Creating this character of Bunny began with a performance piece I did back in Amsterdam. She became a playful tool to confront how male-dominated society attempts to control both women and nature without having any real understanding or respect for their being and innate power.... I took inspiration from Cassavetes' Killing of a Chinese Bookie, Rainer Fassbinder's Lola and then the Giallo Styling of Dario Argento and Jesus Franco to subvert the typical exploitative objectification of the female body.... Working with a small team, we designed and built all the sets in a friend's basement. Our cinematographer, Jamie Allan, was able to secure an old 16mm camera, which had been a lifelong dream to work with. I love how it pushes everyone to consider every aspect, to focus and remain present in the moment whilst you work. Creating this video has been an intense but very rewarding experience: between Ellery, Jamie and myself, we handled the entire production, direction and editing, learning many lessons that will feed back into LUH.INTERNATIONAL, our recently formed production studio."
