Music: lana del rey...





Elizabeth Grant mostly known as Lana Del Rey has become a sensation not only in North America but also in Europe... her distinctive melodrama vocals have been heard about everywhere and anywhere... and as reknown Swedish indie artist Lykke Li... Her vocals have been used in several techno sets... 

This 25 year old girl has really stepped up in the music industry and is now setting up herself as one of the most influential indie/alternative artist... and as previously mentioned her vocals are not so similar to Lykke Li's but her character and the way she portrays herself resembles a lot the renown Swedish singer...

Although they each have their own style I do find that Lana Del Rey shares some strong similarities with Lykke Li..
In my personal opinion her voice is very beautiful but her lyrics are very sad and a bit depressing and not extremely innovative...and I just wonder is she just a sensation because she is still "underground" and not very mainstream radio ? or does she have a true talent and will be able to adapt and be versatile without losing her own style? Or has she just become very popular because of her spanish name?

I might think too much but I think it's better to put everything in perspective instead of just following the crowd and not really paying attention to what your listening to...
