Sounds Like: Electronic pop mixing Eighties flash, blue-eyed soul, and the ongoing search for genuine connection on a smart phone." -Rolling Stone (10 artists you need to know) "LANY are the alternative synth threesome out to take over not just the East and West coasts of America but the entire world..." - Wonderland
"Finding the balance between sensuality and mystery in music is a very delicate process. Some seem born with the right skill set, like the almighty Prince, effortlessly blending their melodies with the right amounts of desperation and longing. Now, [LANY] are tapping into that same rare talent..." - Consequence of Sound "...Los Angeles-based trio LANY is quickly on the rise." - Interview Magazine

LANY continue to make music that aims an arrow at your heart; beautiful songs with swashes of synth, often spare percussion, echoes of prime 1980s FM pop, of early-1990s R&B, of new-wave electronica, combining melody and lyrics to put down roots in your head. Recorded in a tiny room on an ancient laptop, their songs are devastating and beautiful, in a way that you can't quite explain.
The trio will hit the road on a support run with John Mayer for 7 arena shows in Aprilfollowed headline tour in North America until the end of May.
