Lany returns to Manila for second round


For the second time, get ready to love Lany so bad as they make their way to Manila and perform live at the Ayala Malls this weekend.

The American trio’s success was quite organic, with much of the music that propelled them to musical stardom recorded out of aux sockets. Lany frontman Paul Klein admits it was “very do-it-yourself.”

When he and his bandmates Les Priest and Jake Goss uploaded their first song online, they had no social following, no fans, not even photos; but it didn’t take long before their song skyrocketed to multi-million stream victory.

“We just decided: let’s make a band, stick the music online ourselves, and see what happens,” add Klein.

The band finished a full album bursting with so much meaning and emotion. Fans instantly connected to their distinctive and wistful lyrics.

“Some writers aren’t even sure what their lyrics mean until after they’re written, and only then do they attach meaning,” says Klein. “I know what I mean, and I’m going to say it. That’s the only thing that makes sense to me.”

The vocals and instruments were also captured through smartphone apps and the songs were recorded as they were written, reflecting the raw and honest vibe of Lany’s music.

Lany will be performing today at Greenbelt 5 (3 pm) and Alabang Town Center (7 pm); and tomorrow at Market! Market! (3 pm) and Trinoma (7 pm).
