Paul Klein, Jake Goss and Les Priest are starting a movement which is taking over the world.
On the day that they were playing to a sold out 2,000 capacity O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London, they announced an Arena show in Manila. 9 months earlier, they had sold out the 1,400 capacity Koko in London. 48 hours later, they had sold out the Arena date.
LANY are capturing the hearts of millions of fans globally with their brand of indie-pop music. But LANY is more than a band release some truly amazing music, it’s a lifestyle... it’s a full on brand.
Fans show up to shows holding red roses (the motif on their 2017 debut self-titled album) - most hoping that lead-singer and former model Paul Klein will accept theirs.
The debut album followed a string of successful EP’s and singles - including ‘ILYSB’ (85M streams on Spotify), ‘Super Far’ (80M streams on Spotify) and ‘Good Girls’ (23M streams on Spotify) and charted globally. The question increasingly is not, “When will LANY break through?” but more: How do you NOT know about this band?!
Also, they’re James Gilmore’s 5th Most Listened to Band on Spotify for 2017. If that counts for anything?
James Gilmore sat down with Paul, Jake and Les from LANY backstage before their sold-out show in London to discuss their mega 2017, plans for 2018 and the LANY Universe.
