Lana Del Rey

21 Sep

My music obsession right now is American singer Lana Del Rey. Also known as Lizzy Grant, the 24-year-old was raised in Lake Placid, a town in New York state close to the Canadian border. But her dreamy voice drips with Hollywood and is reminiscent of vocalists from eras gone by – much like her looks. In fact, her sound has been described as “Hollywood Sadcore” – the arrangements are lo-fi and the production lush. Oh yeah, and damn, can she market herself! Her YouTube videos have been a sensation, compiling disconnected Super 8 clips into a weirdly evocative, transfixing mash-up.
