Here Comes The Sad Girl
Recently releasing a little teaser of her video for Ultraviolence title-track, brooding songstress Lana Del Rey finally brings us  the full-cut of the gloriously moody visual via Noisey.

Filmed on a seemingly battered-up Super 8, the grainy video keeps with the dazed ’60s ambiance that Lana so effortlessly puts forth. LDR, donning a short, white dress complete with a white veil and a bouquet of flowers, moseys along in a forest, wistfully singing the song’s lyrics, occasionally sucking the finger’s of her beloved, and even stopping to sensually eat an orange in the blazing sun. However, when she makes her way to the church and up to the empty alter, the mood suddenly changes to an uneasy loneliness that is almost too  heartbreaking to bear. Alas, the man behind the camera, or who she was supposed to marry for that matter, remains a mystery. But, perhaps, we were just never meant to find that out.

Oh, Lana. What are we going to do with you?! We need to find you a man that treats you right! Watch the video up top, and let us know what you think in the comment section below.

    This is one of my favorite tracks off the album, but this video is not her best. I understand that she wants to keep it simple, but I expected more. She really didn’t do much here, I’m getting a little tired of the 8mm filter, it’s just meh.
