LANY, the Los Angeles-based duo consisting of Paul Jason Klein (vocals, guitar, keys, production) and Jake Clifford Goss (drums), is known for their meticulous approach to crafting music. With a strong emphasis on careful craftsmanship and attention to detail, they create captivating pop-rock infused with cinematic soundscapes. Their journey as a self-contained D.I.Y. creative entity has led to consistent evolution without compromise, and their music reflects the last year-and-a-half of Paul's life both musically and thematically. LANY's fifth full-length album, "a beautiful blur," encapsulates their dedication to crafting intentional and resonant music.
This album represents a natural progression for LANY, building on their success since 2014, which includes four gold singles and a platinum single. Throughout 2022, while intermittently touring globally, they channeled their live energy into their writing sessions. Influenced by artists like Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, Sting, and The Killers, they aimed to sound more like a band than ever before. With producer Mike Crossey, they honed in on their musical direction, resulting in tracks like "Alonica," a dreamy escape, and "Love At First Fight," a reflection on relationships. "a beautiful blur" radiates with optimism and resilience, delivering a message of hope and ambition to listeners worldwide.
