Interview with LANY

15th December 2017 | Music

Paul Klein, Jake Goss and Les Priest are starting a movement which is taking over the world.

On the day that they were playing to a sold out 2,000 capacity O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London, they announced an Arena show in Manila. 9 months earlier, they had sold out the 1,400 capacity Koko in London. 48 hours later, they had sold out the Arena date.


LANY are capturing the hearts of millions of fans globally with their brand of indie-pop music. But LANY is more than a band release some truly amazing music, it’s a lifestyle... it’s a full on brand.

Fans show up to shows holding red roses (the motif on their 2017 debut self-titled album) - most hoping that lead-singer and former model Paul Klein will accept theirs.

The debut album followed a string of successful EP’s and singles - including ‘ILYSB’ (85M streams on Spotify), ‘Super Far’ (80M streams on Spotify) and ‘Good Girls’ (23M streams on Spotify) and charted globally. The question increasingly is not, “When will LANY break through?” but more: How do you NOT know about this band?!


Also, they’re James Gilmore’s 5th Most Listened to Band on Spotify for 2017. If that counts for anything?

James Gilmore sat down with Paul, Jake and Les from LANY backstage before their sold-out show in London to discuss their mega 2017, plans for 2018 and the LANY Universe.

Discover New Music with Meagan: The Paperweights

11th December 2017 | Music

Each week on her radio show, Meagan introduces her listeners to a new band she’s really into right now. And then she writes it up and pops it online. Here is that write up for this week.

This is a special one... Meagan has grown up with singer/songwriter Taylor Day and drummer John Parrot since she was 12 years old.

The duo, who go by the name ‘The Paperweights’ have been making music together for a decade; they decided in early 2017 to share it with the world. Having played gigs all around Columbus, Ohio they dropped their debut self-titled EP this month.


With memories of watching them performing during the Battle of the Bands and seeing music of them playing music together when they were younger (covers of tracks by the likes of Frank Sinatra and The Beatles, as well as The Weeknd), the ‘Paperweights EP’ is the first original music released by the duo who plan to release a full length album in 2018.

Be sure to check out their EP and follow them online – there are big things to come!

Listen to Meagan's show each week, live exclusively on W!ZARD Radio Station on Sundays from 6pm (UK) or on W!ZARD Repeats, here.

Interview with The Wandering Hearts

10th December 2017 | Music

When most people think ‘country music’ they think of places like Nashville or, in general, America. What most people don’t think of is London.

However, things are changing!

The Wandering Hearts cite the likes of The Civil Wars, Chris Stapleton and The Lumineers as their inspiration for the country-pop sound they are becoming known for.


The London-based band – consisting of Tara, Chess, AJ and Tim – are causing a storm and are tipped as a Ones To Watch for 2018 and beyond. So, it’s only natural that they jump on a Coffee House Sessions Tour!

James Gilmore caught up with Chess from The Wandering Hearts whilst on their Coffee House Sessions Tour to talk hype and new music.
