These days, it’s a rarity to find an artist that sounds as good live, if not better than they do in their recordings. LANY are one of the special few that fall into this category. A collective effort between lead singer Paul Klein and multi-instrumentalists Jake Goss and Les Priest, LANY caught the attention of the blog world a couple of years ago with their brand of heart-on-sleeve balladry that leans heavily towards early 80’s pop.
Although their sound relies heavily on electronics, their stripped-down version of “ILYSB” has become a cornerstone of their live set, resonating amongst listeners young and old. During their recent stop at Lyric Theatre in Los Angeles, VEVO caught a heart-tugging performance of the song for an intimate group of fans and onlookers. In the video above, the group are seen pouring their hearts out on stage, while joined by a room full of adoring fans. It’s really something special to see.
