“All I wanna do is get high by the beach” is Lana Del Rey’s mantra throughout her muted, hip-hop-inflected new single. At first glance, the “High By The Beach” video appears to grant her wish, comprising glamour shots of Del Rey languishing in a luxurious coastline property while a helicopter lingers nearby. Things take a turn for the intriguing halfway through: She rushes down to the oceanside to grab a guitar case, which turns out to contain a rocket launcher. You can guess where things go from there. It’s an awesomely memorable video, so watch below.
