You have to listen to this track by Lana Del Ray! This smouldering, silky smooth number number reminds me of an opening to a Bond movie from the late sixties. It channels touches of Kate Bush and Shirley Bassey combined with the sex appeal of Honor Blackman and an era gone by. Yet, at the same time this twenty something girl from New York feels completely, uniquely, fresh.
Q Awarded her the ‘one to watch’ trophy a few weeks ago and watch they did. The clip below has over 4 million hits since release on the 1th of October, so I think she’s doing alright. Lana Del Rey has since graced magazine covers and talk show sofa around the globe, making her UK debut on the Jools Holland show. Not a bad place to kick of a career.
There’s an album in the pipeline to be released early next year and a host of tracks on the tube to watch out for. She’s the voice of an angel, she’s smoking hot and she’s going to be huge.
