I heard Wrecking Ball on the radio driving home tonight. I think it’s interesting how, either intentionally or unintentionally, there are other artists’ sounds that you can specifically identify.
Like, the opening up-down-up-down thing sounds really similar to what Taylor Swift did in I Knew You Were Trouble.
The hard chorus sounds like something Muse would do.
And the rest of it just has an overall Lana Del Rey feel.
