Heartbreak has never sounded so real.



Groove-Banger



LANY are a bloody fabulous lot. Soaking themselves in melancholic neu-pop glory on everything they touch, the LA trio have slowly gone about exposing the brutal loneliness living in the modern world - and have done so in a fashion that leaves you feeling as if you’re stuck in a dirty rom-com.

'Where The Hell Are My Friends' grabbed the world’s attention, and in 'yea babe, no way' they drive off with it - a grooving number built over a guitar line that could pierce skies and enough mournful electro sensations to ground it firmly within 2016.

What makes 'yea babe. no way' so devastating, though, is the effortless ease that accompanies it. It seems so natural and direct that you can’t help but feel it hit you straight in the gut. When frontman Paul Klein soothes “hate how it feels, I know you’re down the street with someone else but me”, there’s simply nothing else to say. Raw and ripped open, LANY aren’t about holding back.

Grab that extra strength Scotch and stare out over the damp summer sunrises - heartbreak has never sounded so real. Jamie Muir
