New Treat #45: Lana Del Rey

I found Lana Del Rey from the wonderful Breaking More Waves blog. I think the song ‘Video Games’ was love at first listen. It is stunning and quite unlike anything I’ve heard before. She is essentially making pop music, and even sites Britney Spears as one of her influences. But there is also something dark and stirring about her music, and particularly that Nancy Sinatra-esque voice, that stays with you. Theres no gimmicks or sampled beats or badly written lyrics, this is just pure brilliant beautiful pop music.

Theres nothing released yet but I shouldn’t think it would be too far off. Keep an eye and ear out for this lady.
