Courteney and I love music so we decided every Monday we will do a post dedicate to our favorite band,singer rapper or dj local and international.
Courteney has been raving about this singer for awhile now and keeping with the Great Gatsby theme it’s non other than Lana Del Rey. Her song on the soundtrack sold me to this somber song bird with her song Young and Beautiful.
Lana Del Rey born Elizabeth Woolridge Grant (born June 21, 1986)To date, her discography includes two full-length studio albums, three EPs, seven singles, and eight music videos. A highly decorated musician and cinematographer, she has won the Q Award for “Best New Thing”, a GQ Award for “Woman of the Year”, aBRIT Award for “International Breakthrough Act” and another for “International Pop Female Solo Artist”, and an EMA for “Best Alternative Act“.
Why we like her;
Her melodramatic somber sound is different to anything that popular music throws at us today. Everyone tries to be different but ironically all look or sound the same not this beautifully strange singer.
In Courts words; she is dope unexpected and different her favorite song is Queen of Disaster and mine would be Young and Beautiful.
Not only is she a stunning young girl her lyrics are deep and some people may not understand her. You could easily think her music is sad and depressing but I somewhat think its strangely romantic. Her look and sound reminds me of the 8o’s era, watch any of her music videos and you will know exactly what I am talking about.
Her new album entitled BORN TO DIE is filled with a few of good songs.. We love them all but our favorites are Blue Jeans Video Games and Summertime sadness. We encourage you to have a listen!
