Lana Del Rey? Have link?

To some of her songs? Here’s my fave, “Born to Die,” but I’m not a huge fan of the video (it’s a little soulless, just images that look appealing but no sense of motion throughout the whole piece.) Another good one is “Video Games.” I’m intrigued by her because her country voice is supported by lush and frequently dark pop production. Her lyrics leave something to be desired though, they’re sentimental and, well, trite sometimes. Born To Die (the album) is out tomorrow, and I’ve listened to like 25% of it today.

I’m surprised you haven’t heard of her, she’s an incredibly divisive figure in pop music right now, especially if you value the nebulous idea of “authenticity” in what you listen to.
