In her great “High By The Beach” video, Lana Del Rey blew up a paparazzi helicopter with a grenade launcher. That’s a hard act to follow. She doesn’t do anything nearly as spectacular in her new video for “Music To Watch Boys To,” another single from her glamorously bored new album Honeymoon. Instead, she and a few of her friends twirl around underwater while the boys of the title appear, anonymous and in silhouette, playing basketball or skateboarding. It’s both a narcotically dreamy video and one that’s steeped in old-Hollywood signifiers, which means it’s very in keeping with the whole LDR aesthetic. Check it out below.
Honeymoon is out now on Interscope.
