It’s been a swift journey to fame for the talented teen Lorde. Having topped the album charts in both the UK and US with single ‘Royals‘ and debut album ‘Pure Heronie,’ Lorde has emerged as a very credible, vastly more interesting contender to manufactured mainstream chart pop.
Having only recently celebrated her 17th birthday, the New Zealander recently celebrated her this at an event where she performed at the MOMA Film Benefit in New York in front of an audience including David Bowie, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld.
Her latest release is ‘Team‘, for which she has just unveiled a stunning video for, and is one of the most praised songs from her LP. Ella Yelich-O’Connor, aka Lorder, states-
“This video was borne from a dream I had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world – a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was queen. I dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. And of this world, I dreamt about tests that didn’t need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger.”
‘Team’ is out February 17th.
