Have You Heard? BØRNS (feat. Lana Del Rey) - God Save Our Young Blood

BØRNS (feat. Lana Del Rey) - God Save Our Young Blood

Sometimes things are greater than the sum of their parts. On the flip side, there’s this.

Spaniel-haired troubadour BØRNS has been lingering around for some time now, his ‘70s vibes as evident in the glam rock he’s moderately decent at as in his bold sartorial choices. Lana Del Rey needs no introduction, of course, and on paper, we’d find this pairing up an interesting choice capable of some serious retro pop power.

Sadly, ‘God Save Our Young Blood’ is nothing of the sort, instead taking Lana’s laid-back delivery, vague lyrical themes hinting at intoxication and swapping any hint of BØRNS’ distinctive style for generic R&B-lite, complete with dance floor begging synth stabs through the not-exactly-memorable chorus. Sometimes things are greater than the sum of their parts. On the flip side, there’s this.
