Lana Del Rey has an old soul and powerful lyric-writing skills. She’s a lot more mainstream these days, but I would still consider her as a type of alternative music.
Lana is known for her somber songs with deep lyrics guaranteed to make anyone feel something. She’s so skilled at turning her hurricane of thoughts, whether happy or dark, into beautiful works of musical art.
I’ve been a huge Lana Del Rey fan since 2013 and when I first discovered her, I couldn’t believe that one person could have such a soothing voice! Lana’s voice is angelic and her music has a very vintage feel to it. She describes feelings in such interesting ways that I’ve never thought about.
She’s the perfect artist to play when you’re driving around on a rainy day or just having a relaxing, quiet evening at home. There’s something about her music that is so soothing to listen to; maybe it’s because of the soft melodies or the fact that her lyrics are so relatable. Many of her songs make me feel like she understands exactly how I feel and turned it into a song.
Lana Del Rey is a huge difference from the upbeat pop music I usually listen to, but she’s up there on the list of my all-time favorite artists. She’s truly a unique talent in a music world that’s so full of the same boring formula in a lot of songs you hear on the radio.
Lana Del Rey’s songs feel like poems with music because they are crafted so beautifully. She’s written songs about things like being in love and heart break, but she’s also written songs about her own crazy experiences in life.
We all go through some crazy experiences and Lana Del Rey’s music is there to tell you that there can be so much beauty among the chaos.
