Album Review LANY - Mama’s Boy

LANY - Mama’s Boy

Though ‘Mama’s Boy’ won’t exactly be changing the alt-pop game, it certainly might convince you to text your ex after one too many glasses of wine.

Rating:

Since 2014, LANY have been pioneers of “sad boi pop” with previous releases ‘LANY’ and ‘Malibu Nights’ rife with all the feels. Now on third output ‘Mama’s Boy’, frontman Paul Klein is right back onto pulling on heartstrings. Sticking to their tried and tested formula of sad lyrics over bubbly synths, Paul is backed by the trio’s classic alt-pop sound as he croons about relationship woes (‘When You’re Drunk’), getting over heartbreak (‘Sad’), navigating new relationships (‘Good Guys’), and more. Though ‘Mama’s Boy’ won’t exactly be changing the alt-pop game, it certainly might convince you to text your ex after one too many glasses of wine.
