“(…) The album reaches deeper into her slow-motion sense of time, her blend of retro sophistication and seemingly guileless candor.
(…) it opens quiet spaces. Her voice sounds human and unguarded, offering sweetness and ache even when she sings four-letter words.(…)” in New York Times
“Ultraviolence” da Lana del Rey tem estado em repeat no meu Spotify.
E não posso descrevê-lo melhor do que o New York Times.
Mas o mundo de Lana é profundamente negro. “Ultraviolence” dá o título ao album e desmultiplica-se nas 14 músicas que o compõem.
Cruel, Violence, Sad, Cry, são tudo palavras que se repetem ao longo de mais de uma hora de música.
Lana del Rey’s “Ultraviolence” has been on repeat on my Spotify.
And I can not describe it better than the New York Times did.
But Lana’s world is deep black. “Ultraviolence” gives title to the album and multiplies up to the 14 songs that comprise it.
Cruel, Violence, Sad, Cry, are all words that are repeated over more than one hour of music.
“(…)“I want one of two things,” she said. “I either want to tell it exactly like the way it was, or I want to envision the future the way I hope it will become. I’m either documenting something or I’m dreaming.”
(…) “I love the idea that it’ll all be over. It’s just a relief, really. I’m scared to die, but I want to die.” (…)” in New York Times
Há umas semanas atrás, Lana escandalizou meio mundo com as suas declarações ao The Guardian:
A couple of weeks ago Lana scandalized half the world with her statements to The Guardian:
(…)”I wish I was dead already,” Lana Del Rey says, catching me off guard. She has been talking about the heroes she and her boyfriend share – Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain among them – when I point out that what links them is death and ask if she sees an early death as glamorous. “I don’t know. Ummm, yeah.” And then the death wish.
Don’t say that, I say instinctively.
“But I do.”
“I do! I don’t want to have to keep doing this. But I am.”
Do what? Make music?
“Everything. That’s just how I feel. If it wasn’t that way, then I wouldn’t say it. I would be scared if I knew [death] was coming, but…” in The Guardian
Daqui para a frente foi a revolta nas redes sociais… para com a Lana, para com o jornalista… A filha de Kurt Cobain tweetou que a Lana não devia romancear a morte precoce dos artistas e esta retorquiu que não era bem aquilo que queria dizer…
A obcessão de Lena com esta visão negra da vida e do mundo não pode ser uma surpresa para ninguém. Lana renasceu de um passado profundamente precário. Mas “Ultraviolence” é uma viagem melódica e melancólica através deste olhar negro e solitário sobre a vida. Soa a verdade e, com toda a tristeza que lhe está associada, não deixa de ser uma viagem profundamente envolvente… uma que vale a pena fazer…
Going forward, it was the uprising of caos on social networks… anger towards Lana, towards the journalist… Kurt Cobain’s daughter tweeted that Lana should not romanticize the early death of artists and she retorted that that’s not what she wanted to say…
Lana’s obsession with this dark vision of life and the world can not be a surprise to anyone. Lana was reborn from a deeply precarious past. But “Ultraviolence” is a melodic and melancholic journey through this dark and lonely look on life. Sounds truth and with all the sadness associated with it, it remains a deeply interesting and immersive voyage…one worth taking…
