With the release of their self-titled debut album just over a week away, Los Angeles trio LANY premiere a video for “Good Girls,” one of the first tracks to be shared from the record and one that has become a fan favorite. The video sees lead singer and songwriter Paul Klein pensively striding through neon-lit streets like a man on a mission, with nods to the iconic “Bittersweet Symphony” video transposed to the murky nocturnal world of Drive.
“good girls” addresses the emotions of disappointment and unmet expectations battling against unconditional love and second/infinite chances. considering the narrative of the “ilysb” music video, i thought it’d be cool to set up the storyline of this specific song as a potential prequel. watch ’till the end. – Paul Klein
The trio recently collaborated with Snapchat to create their very own lens for “Good Girls,” with everyone from Tove Lo and Demi Lovato to Jared Leto, Chloe Grace Moretz and Anna Kendrick getting involved.
LANY’s highly anticipated 16-track debut album is set for release via Interscope Records on June 30, 2017. The album sees them tap into the trials and tribulations of relationships, feelings of displacement and the endless search for love and a place to call home, very real issues for a band that has been almost constantly on the road for the past two years, playing 135 shows in 2017 alone and 117 in 2016, making them one of the hardest working bands around. The band show no signs of slowing down as they continue to perform numerous summer festivals including Forecastle, Bumbershoot, Kaaboo before headlining their 32-date North American tour this fall.
