Emerging Australian quartet Bel Air’s new single Move is a plucky, infectious dance rock jam, replete with some mellow funk and plenty of warmth and sunshine. They describe the song as “nothing but a party track”, likely referring to its carefree, swaying charm, topped off with languid, smooth horns at the end. I could play this song on repeat for hours, it’s that addicting, especially on a wet and chilly day.

OFFICIAL VID: Lana Del Rey – Bel Air

November 8, 2012

Lana Del Rey released yet another video tonight. This time, it’s a foggy, simple video for twinkling, lovely tune Bel Air, another one of the new tracks off the coming Paradise edition of Born To Die. The video stands at just over four minutes long, so don’t expect the 10 minute epic short films like the ones for National Anthem and Ride. There are no poetic voice overs. As much as I love those videos, this short and simple video for the simplistic song is very welcome and a statement within itself. The conclusion of the video is strikingly haunting in how it extends past the end of the song with the distant sound of children (representing youth?) while Lana continues to gaze at us through the screen. There’s something enchanting about the video up till that moment, then it becomes solely ghostly. The song itself is gentler than other LDR songs. It’s dreamy and immensely wistful. There’s an innocence there she doesn’t oft express in many of her other songs. Matter of fact, it’s the opposite of a lot of her other songs, but still retains her signature tragic atmosphere. Like her art or not, there’s no denying Lana Del Rey is truly an artist. Here’s her succinct but artsy description for the video:

BEL AIR ART NOUVEAU -i lost my reputation, i forgot my truth. But i have my beauty and i have my youth. ‘TROPICO’ the film, coming next year

I’m guessing this means we won’t have any new videos from the Paradise edition until 2013? Or will we? Why mention TROPICO now? TROPICO is another track off the Paradise edition of the album. Seems next year is still a long time from now to hold back from releasing anything else off the deluxe edition which drops next week.
