Literally with in the past few months Lorde has come on to the NZ music scene. I will be honest I don’t really know much about her but that is largely because she only recently entered the NZ music charts. Lorde is still in school and only 16 years old, but when you hear her music its hard to believe. She has a very mature voice and distinct sound.
At the moment my favorite songs by Lorde are Royals, Love club and Bravado. All three have themes regarding consumerism, popularity and materialism – which sounds boring as hell but it’s actually really nice to hear songs that aren’t about love/relationships/partying.
Because Lorde is such a new artist it will be really interesting to see what she does next. I’m hoping she’s not a one hit wonder – but I highly doubt that. The thing that everyone comments on is how smart she is in the way she goes about her music. You can see she is really passionate and in it for the long haul. For example in her recently released music video for royals, what she ended up creating is really artistic and beautiful but there is definitely another direction she could have taken it that would have been much more obvious and more what people were expecting. I like how she has stayed true to the song and probably the image she is trying to create (I am assume she is trying to create.. I could just be reading way to much in to it all?)
