It must be something in that Los Angeles air, but it seems like there's a plethora of bands creating nearly perfect 80's throwback sounds, and one of the best is LANY, who we fell in love with last year. Where other bands lean towards the poppy and joyful - Smallpools, WATERS, Youngblood Hawke - LANY put an emotional, heartwrenching spin on the sound by realizing that not everything can be kittens and rainbows, and that things (relationships, especially) can be pretty fucking difficult and take some serious work, and even then they might not turn out how you wanted. That's the premise behind their new song 'Someone Else', and you can stream it below!

The band are currently out on tour supporting Tove Styrke, and after that they're headed up and down the West Coast a couple times alongside both Maudlin Strangers and X Ambassadors. The full list of shows can be found after the track!
