Single Review // Lana Del Rey – Love
Lana Del Rey is releasing her new album LDR4 on an undisclosed date this year and has dropped her first track from this album entitled “Love” Feb. 18.
“Love” starts off with a cosmic-feeling, deep keyboard and bassline that set the precedent for Rey’s own distant vocals. Her singing seems to be whispered; but, her presence throughout the track is irresistibly eerie. Rey’s poetic niche in the modern music scene is exemplified by the melodies and lyrics of the chorus which reminisces on her carefree past.
In the fast-moving world of today, it is important to be reminded of the carefree times of yesteryear, which this single achieves beautifully.
