With a cigarette hanging limp from her lips and a dark, almost beseeching look in her eyes, Lana Del Rey’s music is as enticing and fundamentally attractive as her musical image of being emotionally damaged beyond repair; her call for love to cut so deep through flesh as to erase all societal pains; the sheer idea of a soul in a desperate need to be saved.
Now Ultraviolence is essentially very dark even by Lana Del Rey’s standards and talks pretty vividly about lost loves; failed attempts at romance and inveterate habits. According to me, Lana Del Rey specifically appeals to both men and women alike because of how obliging she depicts herself in her songs. Her sultry voice more than often times, expresses utter gratitude onboard a colourfully precipitous relationship. While she excels quite vivaciously in this particular arena, I somehow feel more attached to her previous songs and albums; Ultraviolence didn’t quite work the trick for me.
Her voice seems characteristically classy in “The Other Woman” which accompanied by the continuous onset of cascading violins sounds beautifully old and tastefully vintage.
