On a mission to dispel myths about new-wave pop music fans, Emily Vescio went straight to the source, interviewing LANY fans. She asked them why they travel around the world for their favourite band, and explains why they’re not crazy to do so.
Em tweeted the story and it was picked up by lead singer Paul Klein, who then sent it on to more than 260,000 followers.
Then LANY fans tweeted love at Em, and now we’re crying too.
At last count, the story had 6,159 listens in the three hours it’s been online. You can listen to it below.
