Gayngs is a Midwestern indie band with a 1980s soft rock-inspired sound. Founded by Ryan Olson, the group consists of 23 musicians, including Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, Rhymesayers rapper P.O.S, and members of Solid Gold.

Their first album, Relayted, was released by Jagjaguwar and garnered positive reviews for its unique vocal stylings and retro-but-contemporary sound. The songs, inspired by 10cc's "I'm Not In Love", were written at 69 BPM and recorded over the course of a year. The Guardian called the album "a triumph" and listed it as "the album of the year". The Onion's AV Club called the album "big and beautiful".

One of the tracks on Relayted is a cover of the 1985 Godley & Creme hit "Cry". The video for the song is a remake of the original video, featuring a cameo by Kevin Godley himself.

In May of 2010 the band played their first show at First Avenue in Minneapolis. Billed as "The Last Prom on Earth", the concert featured all 23 members of the band, prom-themed decorations, a balloon drop, and a surprise appearance by audience member Prince.

The band has been booked for a ten-show tour in September and October of 2010, culminating with a performance at Austin City Limits in October.
let us talk about this awesome band. also did anyone else hear about justin collaborating with kanye west, either kanye will ruin the songs or justin will turn them to gold, let's wait to find out

Gonna give this a bump. Relayted is one of my favorites from last year, Faded High being the highlight.

The Gaudy Side of Town and Spanish Platinum for me. Really enjoying listening to these guys at the moment.
