Mine Forever by Lord Huron: Listen on Audiomack“Mine Forever”

Lord Huron 

Release date: 3/19

Record label: Republic Records

Lord Huron released a happy song? Well, sort of. The indie-folk group sings of love and loss over sunny instrumentals and a surf-rock-esque guitar line in “Mine Forever.” The lyrics hint at brighter days beyond the grave, a theme that pairs surprisingly well with the beachy yet mysterious sound of the song. 

 

Lana Del Rey music, videos, stats, and photos | Last.fm“White Dress”

Lana Del Rey 

Release date: 3/19

Record label: Polydor Records 

While demonstrating Lana Del Rey’s classic Americana aesthetic, “White Dress” is pulled off course by her interesting vocal choices. At its chorus, the track features wispy vocals that hiss at a listener’s ears like a snake. If you can get past this, though, “White Dress” is intimate, elegant and classy, much like the album it comes from.
