Tuesday Tunes: Lana Del Rey

Oh, how things have changed. Remember when Lana made her debut performance on SNL and the swift, raw backlash that immediately followed? Ultraviolence is proof that LDR has refined her voice and writing skills to craft a new, albeit dark, presence. (She recently commented, “I wish I was already dead,” in an interview with The Guardian. Um, damn.) However, Del Rey is anything but uncontrolled on her newest album which has the skillful touch of The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, who produced most of Ultraviolence. We slide into 1970s California with luxuriant layers of sound which remind us of what LDR is best at: being vintage but new, glamorous but tender, dark but hopeful. (Well, maybe? We need more time with the newly released album.) Whatever the case may be, it’s obvious that Lana has developed her own signature sound and look. Take a peep at Del Rey’s style in the gallery below and take a listen to her newest singles…
