I am really, really picky when it comes to female vocalists, and only really enjoy those with an out-of-this-world amazing voice (Adele, Jenny Lewis). Otherwise, I’m usually not impressed.
But Lorde? Lorde is that good. This sixteen-year-old New Zealand musician combines a stunning voice with hip beats and poignant lyrics to make music that has great soul and energy. She writes her own lyrics, and she wrote this entire EP when she was only fifteen. I discovered her recently, and her debut EP, “The Love Club,” has been on repeat for the past three days. And now I am compelled to tell everyone I know about her, because this girl is about to be something really big — and really, really good.
“Bravado” and “Royals” are my two faves from her EP — here’s the official video for “Royals.”[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFasFq4GJYM%5D
