Like a trust fund angel full of feelings Lana Del Rey has dropped her video for Ultraviolence – just in time for the @dawgmanistan review.
Made entirely with an iPhone, I’m not sure if the esthetic treatment is supposed to look intimate art film or just a sign of where Interscope is at with the video budgets these days. Eitherway, this clip gives you a glimpse into Lana’s doiley collection while reminding me of the most annoying artsy girlfriend I’ve ever taken camping.
Visuals aside, the song is well within what you’d expect a Lana Del Ray track to be. Haunting, reverbed out vocals over an instrumental paced to watch a candle burn. If you’re into dubstep (or other aggressive bass music) I’m sure you’ll hear a snip of the chorus before the big build up because it’s just too easy.
