We love you so bad, LANY Live in London

10 October 2018, 20:17 | Written by Thomas Harvey

Last Friday, indie pop experts LANY released their sophomore album Malibu Nights. Returning to London to play their emotively written songs for the first time to a sold-out crowd, the Californian natives played with a continuous pace of raw emotion, performing pop music with an ever-changing momentum that was complimented by a visually stimulating setup.

Two rectangular screens counting down from thirty seconds and a packed out crowd inside the O2 Forum Kentish Town readily waited for LANY's unique blend of synth power pop. Beginning with album opener “Thick & Thin” - set to a dynamic stage setup of two visually animated screens - the band stood atop a raised platform while frontman Paul Klein took centre stage.

Sporting his Barcelona football top and sun-kissed bleach blonde hair - Klein performed emphatically with songs from the new record with previous releases making appearances including “Good Girls” and “ILYSB”.Highlights included “Thru These Tears” where a rising LANY code showed on screen as the band returned to play the encore for a crowd that evidently didn’t want to say farewell.

Tonight, LANY showcased pop in all of it’s glory; changing visuals moving between previous artworks and nostalgic music videos which allowed emotions to touch you in all the right places for a show that ultimately was a journey.
