In April 2015, Pitchfork named the self-titled debut album from her band, It Was Romance, one of their Records To Watch This Summer, and BUST Magazine called the band the Best Band of 2015. Village Voice premiered the first single, “Philadelphia,” calling the song “mysterious but undeniably attractive. It evokes feelings of loneliness with a danceable beat, not unlike a somber nighttime walk home on wet roads, with colorful, joyous city lights reflecting like a black mirror” and praising the album for its “glittering instrumental aspect and Moore’s velvety vocal delivery make the rest of “It Was Romance” saunter around like the life of the party, occasionally winking just to make sure you’re hooked.”
She recently starred in radio play King Of The Egg Cream, starring Ellen Barkin, Lewis Black, Alex Karpovsky, and Ari Graynor. Lane voices the adorable Dolwich Girls.
