Eat it up, people! Lana Del Rey’s newest single “Meet Me In The Pale Moonlight” leaked yesterday, and it’s got that same ‘ole Lana sound. We’re not entirely sure if this track will be a part of her sophomore album Ultraviolence, due to drop later this year, but it’s a bit more disco with some retro rhythm guitar – less kick drum than usual – but just as many strings as a typical Lana song would have.
It’s good to see an artist keep a similar sound with their music, but to me, she just seems to do the same things with all her songs: angelic, roomy vocals, a huge symphony behind her, and kick drums to the max. I don’t have a problem with that – it’s a refreshing change of pace from what’s normally in my headphones – but it’s not something that I would play on repeat. I’d get lost with which song was which. Either way, there’s no doubt that she has taken over the music scene these last couple of years with her signature, retro sound. Take a quick listen to “Meet Me In The Pale Moonlight” down below.
Having grown up in a dress coded Catholic school his entire life, Bobby French had only seen the red and blue polos and the khaki pants of the fashion world. Whenever he saw a red or blue polo out in the wild, he would gasp, turn away quickly, rest the back of his right hand on his forehead, and shed a single tear. After leaving his hometown of Columbus, Georgia, a place he only knew by those ghastly polos, he finally was able to release his inner swag at the University of Georgia. You can see him stomping the sidewalks around campus in his black harem pants, combat boots, graphic tees, and his Bose headphones (not a sponsor, but open to it), while walking to his Music Business class or classes affiliated with his major, Mass Media Arts. What will you hear when you walk past his blasting headphones, you ask? A myriad of artists and genres: he can get down to some Beyonce and One Direction, or even chill out to the sounds of Active Child and James Vincent McMorrow. Most of the time he is jammin' to Soulection Radio shows on SoundCloud - the soul/R&B vibes mixed with the hip/hop beats and trills makes for a winning combination in his mind. Other interests include: sipping on coffee and being a hipster at Hendershots, learning California surfer slang (i.e. “that's so hesh”) watching hours of YouTube videos in one sitting, wasting his life away on social media, shopping online, day-dreaming about being back in London, and swagging out on a daily basis. One day he hopes to be a recording artist or working for a social media headquarters.
