Discography
From Lana Del Ray

 Kill Kill is the first EP by Lana Del Rey. It was released digitally on October 21, 2008 in the US through 5 Points Records under her then stage name Lizzy Grant. The three songs on the EP, would later be included on the 2010 album, Lana Del Ray A.K.A. Lizzy Grant.

Background and Composition

The title track, Kill Kill, was originally titled, "The Ocean", however the title changed after it was dismissed as boring by her producer. In frustration, Lana crossed out "The Ocean" above the lyrics, and wrote "Kill Kill" in place of a title.

"Yes, when I recorded with Davey, we recorded 13 songs. So I was never expecting to release an EP, but when iTunes came to us, and became fervent supporters and said, “put out anything and we'll give you the artist's spotlight.” We decided, okay, we'll just put out an EP, which was released on October 21."


In an interview, Del Rey called the EP's genre, "Hawaiian glam metal." Artists that influenced the EP's sound include Elvis, Poison, and Van Halen. Songwriter David Nichtern revealed to MTV that Kill Kill was a way for Del Rey and her team to generate some buzz before releasing a fully produced studio album. He also called the title track, "a very good song."

Singles

Kill Kill was the EP's only single. A music video accompanied the track and was published in 2008.
