Introducing Lana Del Rey.
Blue Jeans is a double-A side, to be released alongside Video Games [watch] in October, with a debut album to follow in the new year.
Unique to her music is the amalgamation of disparate styles that shouldn't go together, but do. Soft, breathy vocals (she's a former jazz singer) and hard sounds; seductive as Bardot, hard as steel. The music is as complete as she is, not so much inviting as on a plate, take it or leave it. You'll take it, it's delicious.
In this track, she's like the female Chris Isaak, with a glamorous and sultry old-fashioned 50s Hollywood sound. This is her Wicked Game.
The video echoes the themes with aged film and 50s iconography…
