    the super high breathless vocals are kinda annoying

    Nothing against the artist, but IMO....not a bad song, also not mind bending or a masterpiece. Chorus especially seemed weak.

    I got to the part where she started singing and turned it off.

    This song isn’t my cup of tea, but I really liked “Video Games” when it came out. I haven’t listened to much of her other stuff since then, just because they don’t play it much on my local indie station.



    Her video seems like it gets a little too much inspiration from Chet Faker’s “Gold.”

    "the super high breathless vocals are kinda annoying"

    I agree. Too many female singers nowadays with pretentious affectations. She'd prolly sound great without all that crapola.

    And GET RIDE OF THOSE STUPID MASKS! A years worth of that is enough.

    Sounds like Kate Bush with laryngitis. Not an "awful" song or video, but much improved by turning off the audio. ;)

    That's a nice Sunday Morning track. Lana is lovely.

    Do you like Alduos Harding?

    Sorry guys, next time I'll post a mind bending masterpiece with 3 chords and a bunch Guitar Center blues licks that were the rage 40 years ago.

    Anyone who's not impressed, I say, transcribe it. I did. Every note. It is incredibly complex.

    I gave it a second chance, and I lasted less time than I did the first go-round

    My instincts are generally pretty good, and I've learned to trust my first impressions.

    That song pretty much sucks
    Sorry.
