Lanie Lane’s debut album To The Horses is much like her – at times charming, other times gritty, but always beguiling and catchy.
Lanie Lane expertly interprets the sound, look and feel of the Rockabilly, blues and Rock’n'Roll era. An Aussie singer-songwriter with a unique voice, she weaves tales of love won and love lost, wooing us with her roll fringe and cat-eye flicks and no doubt leaving a trail of broken hearts everywhere she goes.
Her freshly-released album To the Horses (available on iTunes and at JB Hi-Fi) was recorded in only four days to ‘capture what’s happening then and there to make sure the rawness of the music and band energy isn’t lost in obsessive retakes’.
And it really works - not only has she performed sold-out shows, she was invited by Jack White of The White Stripes to record songs in his Nashville studio, and her opening song, ‘Bang Bang’, has already been covered by Glee.
Here’s three of my faves from To The Horses:
