Indie-pop singer Lana Del Rey premiered the music video for "Mariners Apartment Complex" on Sept. 12. The black-and-white clip was shot by her sister, Caroline "Chuck" Grant.
"Mariners Apartment Complex" is Del Rey's first new single since putting out the Lust for Life album last year. It's one of two new songs coming out this month. She wrote "Mariners" with pop producer Jack Antonoff, the guy behind hits by Taylor Swift and Lorde. Like on Lust, Lana continues to let the light in on the '70s-styled track. Piano and psychedelic guitar soundtrack her encouraging and empowering lyrics. "I ain't no candle in the wind / I'm the board, the lighting, the thunder," she sings. Del Rey beautifully basks in the ebb and flow of life while erring on the positive side of things.
The music video for "Mariners Apartment Complex" harkens back to Del Rey's early self-shot clips. Grant filmed Lana exploring the city along the coast. Del Rey's next single "Venice B*tch" is expected to drop later this month.
