Lana Del Rey remains in relative mystery for someone so ingrained in pop culture. She is huge name in pop music, but has enough indie cred for all sorts of people to be drawn to her. It is probably because her voice, visuals and lyrics all fit a certain aesthetic that are both unique and mysterious. The Honeymoon video continues that theme.
Last year’s Ultraviolence album was a smooth string and guitar burner that played rather like a movie in your ears. It makes sense, considering she’s been included in several movie soundtracks, including The Great Gatsby and Big Eyes.
The first single off her new album, also titled Honeymoon, is a slow cinematic ballad nearing 6 minutes that will draw you in slowly and repeatedly.
