The world of Lana Del Rey is so alluring. The siren is certainly not as sea on her most recent single ‘Mariners Apartment Complex’.
Tel Aviv-based indie popsters Lola Marsh released their debut album Remember Roses last year. I wonder if vocalist Yael Shoshana Cohen was thinking of Lana Del Rey when she wrote ‘Wishing Girl’. Instrumentalist and producer Gil Landau makes up the other half of the duo. Have a great week.
Internet sensations should often be handled with reserved judgement, but no care needed this time as Lana Del Rey first came to my attention on 11 October 2011 during her spellbinding performance of ‘Video Games‘ on Later with Jools Holland. An astonishingly good song to introduce yourself to the world …. haunting, vulnerable, crushing… “It’s you, it’s you, it’s all for you/Heaven is a place on Earth with you” / “I heard that you like the bad girls/Honey is that true?” The alternative diva – one could immediately see what all the fuss was about.
