EDITORS’ NOTES

With confident instrumentation and thoughtful, imaginative songwriting, the Nashville band’s debut album is an exhilarating take on country pop that forgoes bro-minded clichés. Producer Jay Joyce (Little Big Town, Eric Church) helps them zig when you think they’ll zag: there are sly tempo shifts (“Middle of the Night”), gutsy chord progressions (“Long Live Tonight”), and plenty of pop-rock spirit. “Born to Love You” blends driving electric guitar with rounds of high-pitched “ooh-oohs” in a track that begs to be performed live.

About LANCO

Country-rock band LANCO -- which stands for Lancaster & Company -- were formed in 2013 by namesake and frontman Brandon Lancaster. Hailing from Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky, the quintet members included drummer Tripp Howell, guitarist Eric Steedly, keyboardist Jared Hampton, and bassist Chandler Baldwin. Crafting feel-good country anthems tinged with classic rock and blues edges, LANCO got their start after a chance meeting between Lancaster and producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town) at a Keith Urban concert. Joyce signed LANCO to his publishing company and produced their eponymous debut EP. The band signed with Sony Music Nashville imprint Arista Nashville in late 2015. Their second EP, Extended Play, was released in early 2016. It contained three of the same songs as their debut, exchanging "High" for newer track and lead single "Long Live Tonight," a pop-infused country song with a Kings of Leon undercurrent. In 2017, their song "Greatest Love Story" was also featured as the theme for the Netflix series The Ranch, and this placement helped break the band, with the single reaching Billboard's Hot Country Songs Top Ten. Hallelujah Nights, the band's long-awaited full-length debut, appeared in January 2018. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
