By now, it’s well known that LANY (pronounced lay-nee) is an acronym for “Los Angeles New York,” a moniker chosen by LA-based dream pop artists Paul Klein, Jake Goss, and Les Priest to denote a nation-spanning sound. Their chill, bubbly dream pop certainly seems to hold that widespread appeal; since forming in 2014, they’ve been tapped to open for the likes of Twin Shadow, Ellie Goulding, and Halsey. With the strength of their latest EP, kinda, which includes infectiously catchy and gloriously chill single “WHERE THE HELL ARE ALL MY FRIENDS”, the trio will serve as a perfect kickoff to Friday’s all-night dance party run of Wolf Parade, Metric, Chvrches (or Foals), LCD Soundsystem, and Matt and Kim. Let LANY get you in the mood to groove.
