Laneous & The Family Yah
Hot off the back of their recent BIGSOUND performance, Brisbane 4 piece Laneous & The Family Yah’s SCISSORS EP has been added to over 100 stations across the American College Radio Network, featuring in numerous Top 30 Charts and receiving plays on some of its biggest stations including KCRW in LA and WNYU in New York.
The bands aforementioned Bigsound performance earlier this month caused quite a stir, partly due to it being the debut of their new 4-piece line up. With a mandate of ‘more with less’ , the 4 piece exposes the freakishly talented multi-instrumentalist in James Lane (Laneous) that has for so long been reserved for the studio. Further, it sees the Family Yah ‘tech up’ - adding Synthesizer, MPC, vocal looping/fx and a space station worth of guitar effects to their existing on stage set up. All whilst shrinking numbers to a hatchback sized touring party.
Like musical idols TV on The Radio, Battles and Little Dragon, the new lineup sees the Laneous sound embrace the electronic - growing in sonic layers by marrying their garage intensity and at times ferocious live playing with moments of complete live electro jams.
Still flying high off the back of Oh She, the lead track taken from their current Scissors EP, L&TFY have announced that they will be taking the new look outfit on the road, so come check out the new machine for yourself.
