LANY love their Filipino fans so bad. After their successful three-day show in Manila last year, and their performance for Wanderland and in Araneta Coliseum in 2017, American indie pop band LANY is now going to Cebu to headline the 5th instalment of Plus63 Music & Arts Festival. 

This announcement was made by local concert promoter Insignia Presents. 

LANY concert Cebu: Venue and Tickets

The three-piece band of Paul Jason Klein, Charles Leslie “Les” Priest, and Jake Clifford Goss is performing on February 2 at 6PM. The LANY concert Cebu venue is going to be in SM Seaside Complex Cebu Concert Grounds.

LANY: music and fans

If there is one thing you need to know about LANY, it is that they have a recurring theme in their music: sunsets and love. Their synths came straight from ’80s power ballads, the 808 drums from modern rap and swagger lyrics prevalent in contemporary music.

LANY is best known for their morning-after slow jams of “Taking Me Back,” “Thru These Tears” and “I Don’t Wanna Love You Anymore.” Their fans find their way to them in search for music that is more subtle and mature. LANY has enough style and charm to create an absorbing story for fans, an ear for the production that alludes and honours pop without being too devoted to it as to not incorporate elements from other genres,  and a speed in producing fresh material that keeps them at the same pace with hip-hop artists who are currently dominating the streaming services.

The group is built around the charisma of singer Paul Klein and powered by multi-instrumentalist Les Priest and drummer Jake Goss. Music may be everything for most musicians, but here is where LANY begs to differ. For the California-based pop group, their art is about an experience, which includes both music and visuals. The combination of their strong aesthetic and their synth-heavy brand of pop has captivated audiences throughout their young career. This is what gained LANY their dedicated fan base in the five years of performing together. 

Paul Klein was once singled out from his bandmates when he and U.K. pop star Dua Lipa dated and broke up. It was rumoured that several recent songs from each are about each other. But beyond all the stan-stirring gossip, LANY holds promise and certainly sets a template on what a modern band looks like, and what makes them able to cater to the taste of the modern generation.
