LANY & Pumarosa
Los Angeles-based trio LANY was formed in 2014 by three friends: Paul Jason Klein, Leslie Priest and Jake Goss. The trio have released three EP’s, including their latest Kinda, which includes the smash hit ‘WHERE THE HELL ARE MY FRIENDS’. LANY are set to be one of the breakthrough live acts of the summer, clocking up millions of streams online and taking their global tour to Australia for the first time. After a year of playing the world’s biggest festivals including Reading and Leeds and Bonnaroo, they have been honing their live set through support slots with Troye Sivan, Ellie Goulding, Halsey and Oh Wonder.
It’s two years since Pumarosa formed, but you’d be forgiven for thinking they hadn’t spent a day apart. Front woman Isabel Muñoz-Newsome and drummer Nicholas Owen started the band by chance. Labeled by Line of Best Fit as ‘Ones to Watch’ in 2016, it was a massive year for the London five piece. They went on tour with Glass Animals, released their debut self titled EP, with The Guardian dubbing the band as the missing link between Joy Division and Pendulum. 2017 marks their first trip to Australia and festival slot along aside The Pixies and The Kills in Japan this February.
