When our team first came across Lana Del Rey, we were immediately hooked: the sultry internet-sensation with a hauntingly beautiful voice instantly became our office pick-me-up. It's rare that you come across new talent that literally gives you goosebumps, but Lana Del Rey's first music video, Video Games, definitely did just that. Lana's retro Bridget Bardot-inspired style and deep husky voice has us longing for a lost time where 35mm film was still popular and celebrities still had a certain degree of mystery about them: a time before internet gossip sites, paparazzi and video games. It's reminded us to live in the present and turn off all the electronics every once in a while: just sit back and enjoy each other's company. We've got mad love for Lana, so check out Video Games below and thank us later.
