“Down on the West Coast, they got a saying. If you’re not drinking, then you’re not playing.”
The first lines of Lana’s highly anticipated new single open us up to a world of summer wonder, lust and sultry perfection.
The seductive melody and breezy baroque tempo is both mesmerizing and gripping. Breathy vocals and a rocky beat give the song a smoky edge. But by the chorus, Lana brings us back to the dreamy and majestic wonderland that she has created for us.
It’s hard not to get lost in Lana’s voice. It’s oozing and dripping with passion and power, while at the same time, it’s laced with innocence and a sweetness that carries you away.
West Coast is a vintage classic; soft around the edges, heartbreakingly beautiful and exquisitely composed.
As a sufferer of obsessive compulsive disorder, I also work as an advocate for OCD awareness. My disorder was what inspired me to create CultNoise, as I felt that it would be a place for aspiring journalists to be heard, no matter what is holding them back.
I am a keen writer, and aspire to be a published author someday, when time allows. Walt Whitman and Sylvia Plath are my greatest loves.
