LANY – ILYSB

LANY

LANY

Devastating pop trio, LANY, have cheered us right up with the new video for ‘ILYSB’ (I love you so bad), probably our favourite LANY song to date.

Speaking of the video, lead singer, Paul Klein, says, “I turned ‘ILYSB’ into a tragedy of unhealthy obsession and unrequited love that ultimately led to psychotic behavior and total derailment.” We’ve all been there, Paul.

LANY – Kiss

LANY by  Alessio Boni

LANY by Alessio Boni

Nashville-born and now Los Angeles-based, LANY are developing into a better and better band every time we hear them.

When discussing the meaning behind new track, ‘Kiss’, lead singer Paul Klein says. “This song is about liars. It’s about people who don’t have the balls to tell you the legitimate truth. They’ll water it down, beat around the bush, spin it whatever way they have to. They’re probably scared to tell you what really happened or how they really feel because they ‘love you.’ But they actually just love themselves.”

‘Kiss’ has been taken off their new EP, ‘Make Out’, to be released on 11 December via Polydor Records.

They are also opening for Elle Goulding during her UK tour in March. But remember, we saw them first!

Sounds like: Crozet, Pistol Shrimp, Brotherun, Goldroom, Scavenger Hunt, Still Corners, Paperwhite, Pawws, Sykes, Washed Out, New Navy, X Priest X, Roosevelt, Great Good Fine Ok, Lostboycrow, MOTHXR, X Ambassadors, Halsey, Tove Stryke, Twin Shadow

LANY – Someone Else

LANY - Someone Else

LANY – Someone Else

We love how different each LANY track sounds. Every one unveils a new layer of dreampop that tastes sweeter and sweeter upon each listen.

Single ‘Someone Else’ does exactly that. It is an electronic love song that would make any notable boy band jealous.

They support Tove Styrke in May and Maudlin Strangers in June/July.

Sounds like: Crozet, Pistol Shrimp, Brotherun, Goldroom, Scavenger Hunt, Still Corners, Paperwhite, Pawws, Sykes, Washed Out, New Navy, X Priest X, Roosevelt, Great Good Fine Ok, Lostboycrow

LANY – Made In Hollywood

Lany - Made in Hollywood

Lany – Made in Hollywood

LANY is a synth pop band from Nashville.

Following on from the release of the ‘Acronyms EP’ and the success of their last track, ‘ILYSB’ being number one on Hype Machine, is the just-as-catchy ‘Made in Hollywood’.

Similar to previous tracks, the lyrics for ‘Made in Hollywood’ are what dream-ridden 80’s American films are made of. This is hazy indie pop at its best.

‘Made in Hollywood’ was self released on 2 September 2014 and can be purchased on iTunes here.

We’ve also included the cheeky Ferdinand Weber remix of ‘ILYSB’ below.

Sounds like: Crozet, Pistol Shrimp, Brotherun, Goldroom, Scavenger Hunt, Still Corners, Paperwhite, Pawws, Sykes, Washed Out, New Navy, X Priest X, Roosevelt

‘Turn To Sand’ is a racey, 80’s inspired track that was initially released last year, but is now featured on MLP’s debut EP,’l’été’. 

The EP is full of tropical tones as MLP flirts shamelessly with the more luxurious sides of disco, through their own Casio-infused lo-fi disco filter.

‘l’été’ was out on 5 June via Cafe Superstar recordings and can be purchased on iTunes.

Sounds like: Husky Rescue, Goldroom, Chela, I BREAK HORSES, Lana Del Rey, Sykes, Annie
