This British group's name looks like an awful Scrabble draw (it's an acronym pronounced "woo life"), but that's about as original as it gets. Though currently the much-hyped band du jour for online indie rock obsessives, WU LYF unfortunately doesn't have much to offer beyond a raspy lead singer and crisp, immediately familiar guitar figures. They could develop into something interesting, but unfortunately everyone will have moved on by then.
