Messenger Down Releases Lana Del Rey Cover

messenger down

Messenger Down have released a video for their cover of Lana Del Rey’s “Young and  Beautiful.” The band’s version of The Great Gatsby’s hot soundtrack hit is a lively alternative performance. While it’s not an exact copy of the hipster ballad, it’s definitely worth a listen whether you’re a Lana fan or not. Adding a full band and making the song much heavier works to Messenger Down’s benefit. We hear some pretty rad vocals (homie can sing, for real) and even more rad guitars. The drums match the dark meaning behind Lana’s lyrics, helping give the song an angry boost.

The band pairs the dope cover with a dramatic video, featuring the guys in their element.

Messenger Down plans on releasing their new EP, What Should Have Been Said, later this year.

I’ll probably love Messenger Down even when they’re no longer ‘young and beautiful’ and you probably will too:
