Lana Del Rey – Video Games/Blue Jeans (Interscope/Stranger, 2011 – Single)

BRIGITTE BARDOT OF THE INDIE WORLD

“She’s got Bardot’s eyes and Daffy Duck’s lips” is what Sam Leith wrote for The Guardian about Lizzy Grant aka Lana Del Rey, the new indie pop star. This beautiful American singer had an album completed a while back ago with producer David Kahne, but it was never released (reasons unknown). Several songs from those sessions were uploaded to YouTube and I must say that r’n’b really doesn’t suit her. So, maybe, the album being shelved is a good thing, because Lana Del Rey completely changed her style and reinvented herself as a diva from the Golden age of Hollywood.

Thanks to YouTube and the Internet, her video for “Video Games” launched her sky high. Both of her two new songs “Video Games” and “Blue Jeans” are really stripped down and done so simple, but sound incredibly powerful. The suiting sound of harp, piano and string section in “Video games” leave enough space for her magnificent voice to echo out of the speakers and give you goose bumps. “Blue jeans” has the rhythm machine and guitar that once again let her voice be the emphasis of the song. Both tracks sing about some old relationship, where she was mistreated but she will “love till the end of time”. We also get the hint of the good girl that isn’t afraid to get dirty for her man.

Great songs, beautiful voice and big potential… Adele, watch out!

BRIŽIT BARDO IZ „INDI“ SVETA

Sem Lejt je za britanske novine Guardian opisao novu indi zvezdu Lanu Del Rej kao devojku sa očima Brižit Bardo i ustima Patak Dače. Ova lepa američka pevačica pre nekog vremena je snimila album sa producentom Dejvidom Kanom, ali on iz nepozantih razloga nije objavljen. Nekoliko pesama sa njega je postavljeno na YouTube i moram priznati da joj r’n’b baš i ne leži. Tako da je, to što je album zaboravljen, možda dobra stvar, jer je pevačica promenila svoj stil i pretvorila sebe u divu iz zlatnog perioda Holivuda (1920-1960 godine).

Zahvaljujući YouTube-u i Internetu, njen spot za pesmu „Video Games“ lansirao joj je karijeru. Pesme „Video games“ i „Blue Jeans“ su ogoljene i pojednostavljene, ali zvuče neverovatno moćno. Smirujući zvuk harfe, klavira i gudačke sekcije u „Video games“ ostavljaju dovoljno prostora da njen izuzetan glas odzvanja kroz zvučnike i naježi vas. „Blue Jeans“ sadrži ritam mašinu i gitaru, i još jednom daje prednost vokalnom izrazu. Obe pesme govore o staroj ljubavnoj vezi gde je ona bila zapostavljena ali će ga ipak „voleti do kraja vremena“. Takođe, Del Rejeva nagoveštava da je dobra devojka spremna da se iskvari za svog muškarca.

Odlične pesme, lep glas i veliki potencijal… Adel, čuvaj se!
