With so many huge acts in and out of our doors, it’s easy to forget those that are out there, tirelessly working their way up to the top who deserve your attention. This week, we’re putting the spotlight on the hotly tipped trio, LANY.
With the band's initial conception occurring in the bedroom of a Nashville apartment, dreamy alternative-pop trio, LANY, are quickly gaining the adoration of fans from around the world. From their reclusive beginnings as unknown artists on Soundcloud, it didn’t take long for them to start attracting widespread attention with the release of their first singles ‘Hot Lights’ and ‘Walk Away’.
The electro-pop three -piece have perfected their craft of melodic declarations of love and longing, with the hypnotizing melodies and deeply deconstructed arrangements of their earlier EPs making an instant connection with listeners. It was single ‘ILYSB’ that really saw the band’s career take off though, ticking off performances at renowned festivals such as Lollapallooza, Reading and Leeds and Bonnaroo one by one.
2017 has been their biggest year yet, though. Along with the release of their self-titled debut album in June, the band were also chosen to support international superstar John Mayer for a seven date US tour and saw themselves playing shows all over the world - from LA to Manila and everywhere in between. The response to their debut full-length has been astonishing; with praise coming in from the likes of Zane Lowe and crowds packing out tents to see them at festivals over the summer.
Despite their increasingly hectic schedules, LANY are committed to delivering their mesmerising live shows to everyone. They kick off their headline UK tour this December and trust us; you really don’t want to miss out.
