While Lana Del Rey arguably grabs more headlines these days as a glamour-girl, it can be easy to forget that the songstress became famous for, well, songs. Mark Roberts, owner and cofounder of Stars & Letters Records, recently took on Lana Del Rey’s 'Gods & Monsters' with his flourishing project We Are Temporary and in one fell swoop, he’s reminded us of the musical wanderlust that Lana Del Rey was originally known for.

Everything about We Are Temporary speaks to the dark and sultry with waves of light, the polarity that you only find in real, true, striking beauty and that makes the project so intriguing. This cover is no different; there’s a pronounced sense of right and wrong, light and dark, truth and lies beneath the vocals that takes the essence of the original in a completely different direction.

Influenced by everything from dream pop to goth to ambient sound, Roberts takes Lana Del Rey’s Gods & Monsters from something delicate and thinly veiled and turns it into something significantly more eerie, futuristic and industrial. He’s at the corner of dipping into places like the 90s grunge scene and today’s more progressive underground sounds.

It’s a rare occasion that you get the chance to see the ingenuity behind a label in the work of its owner, and Roberts doesn’t disappoint. We Are Temporary has already garnered attention from some major magazines and venues on the East Coast with a debut album set to drop in February 2015 on Stars & Letters Records.

If you haven’t already, now’s your chance to connect with music that still has some of that pure rock feel to it:
