I've recently got into Lana Del Rey and I'm looking for other music that captures the same vibe, especially metal. I'm looking for that vintage 1920's/1930's bar vibe, exemplified by this song:

Thanks :)

Leaving this here because I think it meets the criteria, but I'm very curious about any recs in this thread as I've been looking for a similar sound recently and I really like Lana Del Rey.

Only artist I listen to that fits this description would be Melanie de Biasio. Her last album, No Deal, is filled with some seriously dark, jazzy songs.

Spoiler: show

Seconded. Lana Del Rey's been one of my favorite artists for about two years now and after searching to the ends of the Earth I've concluded that there simply isn't anything that sounds exactly like her, but Florence + the Machine's Ceremonials is pretty close. She's probably the only other pop artist I know who goes for such a big and vast sound with a lot of majestic instrumentation, instead of trying to sound completely bleak and empty. Her music is less dreary than Lana's is, but I get similar vibes for sure.

What on earth is 20s/30s about this? It's a contemporary pop song with strings?! I have no idea what you possibly can be thinking of. And metal with a vintage vibe? Seems wholly oxymoronic to me.
Could you please give examples of music with a "vintage 1920's/1930's bar vibe", preferably from the 20s or 30s.

The only band I can think of is Vaya con Dios from Belgium, pop songs in a 40s swing style. But that really has nothing to do with Lana del Ray, other than her image I suppose, although that is more 50s/early 60s.

OP's song wasn't the best choice to represent Lana's retro vibes. See what you think of this:

^Sounds like trip-hop to me. Reminds me of Bitter:Sweet
