Lana Del Rey bids farewell to her love and the summer.
As the US says goodbye to the summer, festivals and shows are seeing the finals runs too. That doesn’t ever have to mean we can’t still get new music, however sombre that music might be. It’s bad enough that she has to bid farewell to the summer, now Lana Del Rey is learning to let her love go as well. “Summertime Sadness” makes winter blues fade in comparison to losing your summer love who you thought would be around through it all. A classic, cinematic “love lost” narrative makes up the main plot of the music video through a grainy grading for Super 8-esque effect. If you’ve just suffered a broken heart, it might help to know you’re not alone. Otherwise, this is work of art not to missed.
