Cherry Pick of the Week: Lana Del Ray - West Coast

West Coast, Lana's second biggest US hit to date caused more than a stir when she unveiled it at her Coachella set this month. 

Dark & melancholic, its reminiscent of Young and Beautiful, one of my favourite additions to The Great Gatsby soundtrack and a foreshadow of Lana's deliciously dark rendition of Once Upon a Dream for Maleficent

To me this is perfect chilled out, driving in the sunshine track - that could be partly because of the echo of The New Radicals: You Get What You Give with the 'You've got the music in you' chorus line. 

The bottom line is, once West Coast lands this side of the pond on May 18, expect stratospheric things. 

What's been playing on repeat in your noggin this week then?

Absolutely loving this song at the moment :). So catchy but so relaxed at the same time. Very excited for her new album, whenever that arrives!
