ASBO Live: Lany


Lany are that west-coast, LA dreamboy band that sing about non existent problems but the chapped lips of broken hearted ex-lovers, that they’re still not quite over and the crowd at O2 Academy Brixton reflected that perfectly.

Rocketing into the charts from their 2017 self titled release solely wasn’t apparent at all as they graced the sold out venue with ‘Thick and Thin’, a celebration from their latest release’ Malibu Nights.

Production alone, it’s clear that Lany are invested in their live performances as well as their actual sound. In a similar way The 1975 presents themselves, the band take to a perfectly instagramable LED lit stage with screens and raised boxes while frontman Paul Jason Klein concourse the stage floor in elegant dances.

For a band that takes you to a paradise haven through through the music alone, their live shows fully immerse you in that private getaway.
