A bedroom is the place to sleep, to hang with friends, and to listen to music without disturbance. LANY did all of this with the addition of making music, using Garage Band on a Dell computer. And the amazing things that happened were only a matter of those three things they had: a bedroom, Garage Band, and of course, their strong-built friendship.
Each member, Paul Klein, Les Priest, and Jake Goss, studied music in college and were multi-instrumentalists before forming LANY. If you are at all familiar with the English alternative band, the 1975, you’ll notice that their musical ideas are fairly synonymous. Like the 1975, they have a penchant for visual aesthetics, atmospheric synths and drum machines, and also share songs with acronyms and other unique titles, like this new track called “yea, babe, no way.”
The song title is the inner-dialogue someone might hold when dying to reconnect with an old flame. That moment of going from “yes” to “no” and letting go of what’s already over. We’ve all had that feeling of missing someone so intensely but never doing anything to reconnect out of sadness and fear. The “missing” then become our own living ghosts and stories, whom we live with and learn from.
Because one song isn’t enough from LANY, here’s “WHERE THE HELL ARE MY FRIENDS,” another song on their full-length debut set to release this year.
