Single Review: LANY - ILYSB

The LA-based electropop band from Nashville, LANY, have just gifted their fans with a dream-like video for their most popular song yet ‘ILYSB’.

The trio Paul Klein, Les Priest and Jake Gross released this track as a part of their first EP, ‘Make Out’ in 2015.  ‘ILYSB’ is an acronym for ‘I love you so bad’ which creates a sick-in-love theme. The lyrics and vocal performance of Paul make me daydream about an obsessive and innocent love that many of us yearn for. "You need to know that I’m hella obsessed with your face” and "Nobody could take your place” signify his mad love or infatuation towards his beloved one.

Despite repetitive and slightly obsessive lyrics, I find the song very memorable and optimistic.  

Nevertheless, with the help of the video, Klein explains:"I had an opportunity to flip the script, to beautifully blindside the fan and the critic. I turned ‘ILYSB’ into a tragedy of unhealthy obsession and unrequited love that ultimately led to psychotic behaviour and total derailment.”

The video itself presents the trio wearing hockey masks while breaking into (supposedly) his ex-girlfriend’s house. Paul sings “oh my heart hurts so good, I love you babe so bad” as he smashes items with a baseball bat furiously. 

‘ILYSB’ takes me to a different world, the world of crazy love and desire of having someone who would be as dedicated to and caring for me as myself towards my beloved one. Very catchy, personable and positive!
