LANY: Live at The Wiltern (alt rock) tix. req.
May 28 @ 7:00 pm
LANY stylized in all caps, an acronym for “Los Angeles New York”) is an American alternative rock band from Los Angeles, formed in Nashville in 2014. The band consists of Paul Jason Klein, Charles Leslie “Les” Priest, and Jake Clifford Goss.
Signed to Polydor and Interscope, the band have released two top 40 albums: LANY (2017) and Malibu Nights (2018). Additionally, they have released a slew of singles, their most successful being the RIAA-certified “ILYSB” (2015), the Julia Michaels collaboration “Okay” (2019), and “Mean It” (2019) with Lauv.
LANY was formed in March 2014 when Paul Jason Klein, who had a small solo career, flew to Nashville to meet up with friends Jake Goss and Les Priest. Previously, Goss and Priest had a separate project by the name of WRLDS, but this was discontinued after the formation of LANY. The following month they anonymously uploaded two songs, “Hot Lights” and “Walk Away”, to SoundCloud in order to differentiate between their old and new projects. Their debut EP, Acronyms, followed later that year, with the song “ILYSB” generating significant interest online. Singles “Made in Hollywood” and “Bad, Bad, Bad” soon followed, along with the reveal of their identities.
