lana del rey dropped another super-dreamy track

    “high by the beach”

    by · August 10, 2015

    Since she first appeared on everyone’s smoke-infused radar with “Video Games,” Lana Del Rey has become a sort of muse, and her music a haven, for stoners. Now, she has perhaps delivered her greatest hazy anthem, “High By the Beach.” The song is filled with sweet breathy vocals, matter-of-fact lyrics, and an overarching sense of torpor, which is somewhat off-set by the electronic backing beat.

    “It started with the chorus,” Del Rey told Zane Lowe on Beats 1. “I was driving by the beach a lot. This was probably one of the last ones on the record…Even with the harmonies, it almost sounded monotone. But with the beat, it has this trap influence.”
