Calling all The 1975 deprived fans, here’s a new band to start obsessing over! Pronounced Lay-Nee, this band is probably the most beautiful love child of 80’s pop, 90’s R&B and current alt-elctro pop all put into one (listen to ILYSB and Bad Bad Bad).
Consisting of band members Paul Klein (vocals), Jake Goss (drummer) and Les Priest (back up vocals and guitarist), they’ve managed to go from making music for fun in a Nashville bedroom to touring with Halsey and performing at Lalapalooza.
The small band initially made a couple of songs and uploaded it to soundcloud with absolutely no followers and a cover of Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson as their profile picture. Now, with over 1 million hits and over 10,000 followers, the band is quickly gaining recognition from all over the world, even from famous Hollywood icons such as Ashley Benson and Selena Gomez.
What probably makes them amazing is that they don’t exactly sound like any other bands. The lyrics are great and actually have a storyline and the beats make you want to dance like it’s prom night in some cheesy 90’s movie. Whatever it is, the tunes are contagious and you’ll be catching yourself humming along without even realizing it.
Even though they come from different musical backgrounds, the three of them have no problem making amazing music together and are planning on recording a full album soon after things wind down. In the meantime, make sure to check out their soundcloud, spotify or even purchase their EP I loved You on iTunes.
