LANY (@thisisLANY) Unveils New Track “Where The Hell Are My Friends”‏

Los Angeles based alternative rock band, LANY, unveil their new track “Where The Hell Are My Friends,” a groovy alt-pop anthem about the loneliness of a big city today via Interscope Records.  PRESS HERE to listen.

LANY has recently toured with Troye Sivan and is currently opening for Ellie Goulding on her UK arena tour.  Next up the band will be embarking on their first headline tour in May and will be performing at Bonnaroo, Sasquatch! and several more US festivals this summer.  Tickets for the band’s headline tour are on sale now with many dates already sold out, PRESS HERE for details.

LANY (comprised of Paul Klein, Les Priest and Jake Goss) happened organically, as it was just a group of friend’s hanging out in a bedroom playing around with instruments, and they soon realized that there was something special there.   In just a year they have reached #1 on hypemachine, #39 on Spotify’s 100 emerging artists at SXSW and have toured with Twin Shadow, Tove Styrke, X Ambassadors, and Halsey and recently performed at Lollapalooza.

They first came together in 2014. Klein had recently moved to LA and collaborated with his old college friends on some tracks he’d written. Within days they’d written and recorded songs so good they even surprised their creators. An A&R frenzy was sparked after the band uploaded them to the internet and soon they added the blissful ‘ILYSB’ to their arsenal. The song’s mix of emotional directness and universal embrace, both in its lyrics and its melody, connected in a huge way when they put it online. So far, it’s had over eight million plays on Spotify.

This has all happened by the band doing it their own way. Everything has been recorded and produced by LANY themselves in their own apartment. “We’ll record things using a $2 app if that’s what’s to hand. That’s how we roll,” says Klein. They realize what’s important is the song and the chemistry, and they have both in spades. “As long as it’s just us in that room, the music’s gonna stay that way. It’s where the magic happens.” LANY have conjured up some of the year’s most exhilarating synth-pop songs. Be prepared to be under their spell.
