We’re excited to announce that Ellery Roberts (WU-LYF) and Ebony Hoorn, aka LUH, have been added to the Saturday line-up!
Ebony and Ellery met in the band’s dying days in 2013. Ellery returned to Manchester from touring and met Ebony (visiting from Amsterdam) in the derelict squat that a group of Manchester based musicians shared. They made an instant connection, “We’re both lone wolf characters who don’t often find much joy other people, but we found something we enjoy in each other,” says Ebony.
Both are artists in their own respective fields – Ebony is a recent graduate of the audio-visual department in Amsterdam’s prestigious Rietveld Academy – and the two quickly found themselves in constant contact over the internet, sharing dreams and inspiration. Eventually Ellery left his refuge in London to make a life with Ebony in Amsterdam, and they were able to focus on a shared life project in totality.
“It’s interesting living and creating together,” says Ellery. “Fundamentally we had this instantaneous feeling that we wanted to do this together, to explore life together. And music for me is an instinctual way to explore, document life.”
