Needless to say, WU LYF/Los Porcos didn't really generate a lot of headlines til NME posted a short interview with drummer Joe Manning, the ex-WU LYF members' first published reaction to frontman Ellery Roberts' sudden departure: "We all knew it wasn't working. There's no one explanation for it. There's a million reasons that don't amount to much more than it just didn't work. No one is trying to cover anything up. If it doesn't work, it's going to break eventually." No word just yet on if/when Los Porcos plan to release a full-length, which would be the proper follow-up to WU LYF's lone album, Go Tell Fire to The Mountain (2011). "Do You Wanna Live?" is a smooth, bass-heavy nearly 6-minute long Soft Rock romper. It's kinda hard to judge a new band based solely off 2 formative tracks... But I think I'm gonan stick around to see what Los Porcos have in store next for the music world!
