When discussing the meaning behind the track, lead singer Paul Klein says, “It’s about that exact back and forth emotion. Like…’Wow, I miss you and what we had was pretty amazing and actually how did this not work out and yeah this hurts a ton and sometimes kinda a lot of times I wanna call you and try again, but then I’m like no I can’t, I just can’t’ … ya know? It’s that kind of feeling.”
LANY recently concluded their first headline tour which SOLD OUT well before the band played the first show, with the demand to accommodate fans resulting in extra dates being added and rooms extended. With performances at Bonnaroo, Sasquatch and Firefly already under their belt, the trio will be performing at Electric Forest and Outside Lands later this summer, as well as opening for Oh Wonder on select dates.

LANY (comprised of Paul Klein, Les Priest and Jake Goss) happened organically. It began when the old school friends collaborated on songs that Klein had written and within days they had created a clutch of anthems that were too good to ignore. The band record and produce everything themselves in their apartment in Malibu. Even at this early stage, their songs have connected on a large scale: the blissful dream-pop of “ILYSB” made big waves when they put it online and has over 15 million Spotify plays so far. Their single “Where The Hell Are My Friends” is already nudging 4 million plays in a matter of weeks. LANY create music that makes the intimate feel universal and connects them indelibly with their growing army of fans.
