Used as an 'in the know' synonym for 'cool'. The origin of the word is found within the heart of Melbourne, Australia's 'cool' culture: the laneway.

The word conjures imagery of graffiti (with artistic merit), hard to find bars and trendy clothing. It evokes the smells of pure espresso, gourmet focaccia and 'just created' innovative cocktails. It resonates with the sound of hip-hop jam sessions, stomping nouveau trance and funky jazz.

It is ... laneway.
Dude 1: Hey man, my slamming beats have scored me a record deal and the C-A-S-H is gonna be rolling in.

Dude 2: Dude, that's so laneway.
