LANY Continue Being Excellent With New Song “The Breakup”

Maybe the best new song of this week.

Going through it? LANY are here to help.

If you don’t know, LANY is a very good band from Los Angeles that are rather excellent at making melancholy synth-pop. Sad-pop, maybe? Anyway, you should know.

Their self-titled debut album is coming out this summer and today they released “The Breakup”, the fourth song we’ve heard from it.

As a wise woman sitting by the ‘piana’ once said, “Some of the most touching songs are the songs from heartbreak”, and I think that stands correct for some of the best pop songs, like this one.

Lead singer Paul Klein sings of falling fast and crashing hard over the guitar-led production, which is somehow both rather sombre and perfect for a spring day.

“‘Cause once you let it go, you better know it’s gone / It’s never the same, oh, after the breakup / It’s never the same love, don’t try to make up.”

Honestly, is there anything better than a sad pop song? One that doesn’t sound like a ballad but is probably sadder than most ‘proper’ ballads.

Listen to “The Breakup” below.
