Out of Nashville, Les Priest, Jake Goss, and Paul Klein make up LANY. They just released a brand new single called, “WHERE THE HELL ARE MY FRIENDS”. The new single will lead in to another release in 2016 after it follows the EP that the band released at the tail end of 2015 called, “Make Out”.
“Make Out” is a strong EP for this trio that’s easy to groove to. Both melodic and soulful, LANY makes a hell of an impression on this EP. Starting with the lead single and the lead track off the album called “ILYSB”, the EP starts great and it never really loses steam through these five tracks. There’s no doubt that the single is the best song on the EP, but there’s not a drop off in content after the song. All of these tracks are terrific with some personal favorites being “Bad, Bad, Bad” and “Made in Hollywood”. As a bonus, there’s a stripped version of “ILYSB” at the end of the record and it’s just as good, if not better, than the studio version of the song.
I’m looking forward to the next release from LANY. The new single is great and the EP from the end of last year is superb. If you like alternative pop with a strong groove – this is a trio that you need to listen to right away.
