There can be a lot said about the seventeen year old new music artist from New Zealand, who is making a name for herself in the music industry. With her debut charting album dropping before she turned seventeen, Lorde (Ella Yelich-O’Connor) should be more than confident in her music as she describes in one of her songs “I may be young, but I am coming for the crown”. There are a lot of good things I can say about Lorde and her music, but I what I found most impressive about her, is that she is genuinely having fun with her music. Yes, this is her first album, and as well she should have fun, but Lorde seems to let her upbringings and life’s experiences take over her music, instead of it being forced. Her witty,young soul and energetic lyrics, backed by strong instrumentation,help uplift her voice through every song. Her music has a mix of art pop,grime,alternative, and even hip hop, which I quickly realized by the pulsating drums, kicks, which be be heard on some of her songs. Oh, and one of her favorite artist is Lana Del Rey which gives her more brownie points. I would also like to point out she isn’t screaming and crying over love ballads like other artist,like Taylor Swift to mention. Don’t get me wrong Swift is a great artist, but how many times is she going to let a faulted relationship determine most of her music.I don’t buy music much, but when I do its for substantial reasons. Key songs on the album include, Tennis Courts, Glory and Glore, Royals, A World Alone, Still Sane, White Teeth Teens, Team, Buzzcut Season, Ribs, and 400 Lux. Wow! I just named every song on the album. See what I mean.
