Lana Del Rey: Scala, London

Caroline Sullivan, Guardian, The, 17 November 2011

LANA DEL REY may become the most recognised stage name since fellow New Yorker Lady Gaga, but it's just as possible it will end up filed away alongside Little Boots. In a career that has so far produced just one official track, the top 10 single 'Video Games', it's too early to tell. For the moment, the artist born Elizabeth Grant is the most talked-about newcomer of 2011, and her London debut was carpeted with hipsters, some of them tweeting opinions well before she set foot on stage.
