Lana Del Rey – National Anthem

Today Lana Del Rey released her new video for National Anthem. The video starts off a little strange, but the cinematography is really beautiful and fitting. When Lana Del Rey first emerged onto the musical landscape, the phrase “Gangster Nancy Sinatra” was being thrown around a fair bit. This video totally embodies that – it fuses contemporary hip hop culture with nostalgic sixties affluence, and somehow this combination really works well.
