In a moment when many new artists seem afraid to offend or go off script, Lorde does exactly what’s not expected. In her first single ‘Tennis Court’, the New Zealand singer-songwriter stares right at you, with hypnotic and in some way disturbing eyes, for three and a half minute. It is the anti-video of everything else produced by other artists in the same segment. Her new single, the global smash ‘Royals’ made Lorde the youngest artist ever to top the Billboard’s alternative list, and with the lyrics “We don’t care, We aren’t caught in your love affair”, she introduces herself like she is one of the few that don’t give a f*ck. Oh, and did we mention, she is only 16 years old?
But then again, the beautiful Ella Yelich-O’Connor, or better known as Lorde, is not exactly your typical teenager. Her music has a ‘vice beyond her years’ attitude. Actually, the girl is so cool that Katy Perry asked her to tour with her, which Lorde politely declined. Her music is compared to a blend between The XX and Kanye, with a voice like Lana Del Rey. Her debut studio album Pure Heroine will be available in the end of October. If you haven’t listened to her yet, you should definitely check her out and prepare to get amazed.
