CRITIC REVIEWS

Alternative Press

There’s something special about the lyrical content that proves relatable yet poignant and beautiful all at the same time, resonating with listeners through the band’s unique ability to take basic, everyday ideas and turn them into an imaginative work of art.

Clash

Bottling up teenage emotions and expressing it in effervescent electronica and wistful melodies, their self-titled debut is 16 tracks of minimalistic and clean compositions overridden with Paul Klein’s lovestruck lyrics.

AllMusic
Overall, the album is still an agreeable first effort, although it doesn't really produce anything demanding immediate attention.

A.V. Club

LANY’s ambition is admirable—and this debut will sound great blasted at parties all summer long—but its pleasures end up feeling superficial and ephemeral.

The 405

Listening to LANY is like listening to the woes of someone in the most boring on-again off-again relationship of all-time.

Great debut album from LANY, it could definitely be shorter though. I like the honesty in lyrics and pop melody with layered vocal provide the perfect summer vibes.

Does what it sets out to do. Catchy and unique pop. The lyrics are meaningless, but they aren’t really in focus. I enjoyed listening to this.

i can see it's making an effort to be relatable w/ the whole first love bubbly but melancholy Mood but like. most of the lyrics feel clunky and trying REALLY hard to cater to teens.. eg "i'm hella obsessed with your face" .... i do love 13 and ILYSB is p good but the rest of it isn't super memorable
