To think, WU LYF were hardly more than a mysterious Tumblr presence about a year ago. Now, look at those boys! They’re like a real band that plays concerts and has a record out called Go Tell Fire to the Mountain and has pictures proving that its members are real human beings and not just collages of mountains and fire. It’s cute, is what it is. They also do a lot of unintelligible shouting, which is pretty cool but really not all that cute. A puppy would never shout at you.
But a puppy would never tour the United States in the spring of 2012 either. Hello, that was a transition. WU LYF are coming to the United States next spring, so that they can shout at you and you can shout back. “NOH MATTAHH WHUUT TAHEAY SAEH, DOLLAH IZ NAWT YORE FRAYEND,” they shout. “NOH MATTAHH WHUUT TAHEAY SAEH, DOLLAH IZ NAWT YORE FRAYEND,” you shout back. It’s a beautiful sight of terror, but also, yeah, a little adorable.
