A teen who goes by the stage name Lorde. Born Ella Yelich-O’Connor, Lorde is a 16-year-old New Zealand import poised to make it big stateside. She is sure turning heads world wide with her recent hit Tennis Courts and her number one hit Royals being played everywhere at the moment made me stumble upon this gem. So young and so powerful with her unique sound and quirky good looks. This young girl is on path of stardom. I totally love her sound very similar to the likes of Lana Del Rey but she is young and in tune to another generation.
Lorde told HuffPost last month. “I guess I understand, but I think I’m different because my music is accessible, but it’s also smart and those are two things that don’t often go together musically. I think it’s probably because I’m an Internet kid. I’m watching ‘Adventure Time‘ but I’m also reading Allen Ginsberg. I’m a mesh of references — fun and smart? I don’t know where I’d put myself. I’d like to think I’m doing something different.”
She is already dominating the charts Lorde became the first woman to top the Billboard Alternative Songs chart in the United States since Tracy Bonham in 1996. If you have not heard her sing I suggest you take a listen to her and I guarantee you will be surprised if you like this indie melodramatic somber sounds this will be another artist to add to your playlist.
