CURRENT: Ellery James Roberts – “Kerou’s Lament”


While WU LYF remains a thing of the past, former lead singer Ellery James Roberts emerged recently with the stunning new track “Kerou’s Lament.” The beat recalls “Such Great Heights” from The Postal Service, but the similarities end there. Roberts’ explosive vocal delivery gives the song a razor’s sharp edge, and coupled with the gorgeous production, his vocal delivery is much more of a necessary emotional release instead of an insincere action. “The powers that be / you’ve fucked up this world / but you won’t fuck with me,” growls a defiant Elle Jaie, until the song becomes a universal rallying cry.
