Los Angeles-based trio LANY was formed by three friends: Paul Jason Klein, Leslie Priest and

Jake Goss. Crafting dreamy pop with an R&B spirit, the members of LANY studied music in

college and are multi-instrumentalists. The band's name (pronounced "Lay-nee") is a nod to Los

Angeles and New York, marking their desire to spread their music from coast to coast. That

music combines the feel of '80s radio pop, '90s R&B soul, and atmospheric synths. They

continued to build a following while on the road, touring with Troye Sivan, Ellie Goulding,

Halsey, and X Ambassadors. The group eventually signed with Polydor Records. They released

a third EP, the six-track Make Out, which culled tracks from their previous releases, including the

song "ILYSB" ("I Love You So Bad"). The song was a hit online, reaching over 14 million

streams. While LANY embarked on a world tour in 2016, they released "Where the Hell Are My

Friends." Their self-titled debut album followed in 2017.
