Music: Lana Del Ray- West Coast

2014-04-18 12:00


In a nutshell: American Pop princess, Lana Del Ray, debuted a new single at Coachella this last weekend. A pop-Rock ballad from her upcoming album, Ultraviolence. Is the world ready for another round of Lana?

What’s it like: A warped rock rehearsal in the desert. A random arrangement of rock instrumentals play second fiddle to Lana's captivating voice resulting in a weird but enthralling sound.

Fave Bit: The introductory drum arrangement that threw us off completely. Is this a reggae song? a rock song? a horror movie score? Like a rollercoaster, it's uncomfortable but so much fun!

Rating:  Really hard to put a finger on, West Coast pushes Lana Del Ray's sound further into the category of strange but her voice pulls it all together to make this into a confusing but catchy hit  4/5
