Sweet Sounds of Summer… Introducing Lana Del Rey

I can think of no better debut for the Daily Transmission’s culture section than Lana Del Rey. From the music blog Arjan Writes: Lana del Rey (aka Lizzy Grant) is an exciting new pop artist who crafts a distinct sound, best described as cinematic dark pop wrapped in smoky, sultry and glamorous overtones. Born in the rural town of Lake Placid, New York, Lana then relocated to a series of places – Alabama, New Jersey and New York City, but now spends most of her time in London.

Her press release sums things up pretty nicely, “No matter where in the world Lana is, her love of film noir, Italian landscapes, big churches, roller coasters and the memory of faded stars like Bette Davis, Kurt Cobain, Nina Simone and Elvis are the chorus line for her music, and her love of New York is her heartbeat.”  Lana is currently in the studio writing her album, and you can see the video for “Diet Mtn. Dew” below:

Don’t forget to follow her on Twitter and for more tunes, visit her MySpace. Just in time to ring in the Summer Solstice. ♥
