Lana, why do you have to do this to us? You give us everything and nothing, at the same time. Everything in the sense that we get a trailer for the album, a damn trailer for an album like its a blockbuster summer movie. Nothing because we couldn’t squeeze a live televised performance out of you for any track off “Ultraviolence” and it’ll probably be the same for “Honeymoon.” Ah, well. Can’t have it all, can we?
The trailer for “Honeymoon” has visuals we haven’t seen before. Of course, it’s vintage and grimy looking with a valencia Instagram filter, but its expected from Lana these days. We get a preview of four songs off “Honeymoon,” two we have heard in full, if you’re up on your game, and two we have never heard. We’ve heard “Terrance Loves You” and “High By The Beach,” but its cool to have this visual to see the music sort of dance to. The two new tracks are “Freak” and the highly anticipated “Music To Watch Boys To.” Both tracks give off the heavy, melancholy vibe sonically. “Music To Watch Boys To” sounds nearly a cappella with very light music underneath the vocals.
It’s promising to see these visuals because there are four minutes worth, so that means Lana took some time to film different scenes, in different places, with different ideas in her mind. Hopefully, this means a lot more visuals this time around. I’m such a fan of Lana’s music videos, even the ones I don’t really care for are superb, like “High By The Beach.” The more I watch it, the more I appreciate it until it gets to the bazooka in the guitar case part, then I side-eye the screen.
