This singer from New Zealand is on my list of ones to watch and apparently on other people’s as well. I have heard that artists such as Grimes have mentioned their appreciation for Lorde’s music. Lorde is a popular artist in New Zealand having reached number one in the NZ charts with her track, Royals. She is still in her mid teens but who cares? She writes some great tracks in the vein of Marina and the Diamonds and Grimes but with her own unique twist.
Her debut EP release at the end of 2012 called Love Club went to number two in the NZ charts and I think it is about time that more of us on this side of the planet get to hear her music. I can’t recommend listening to this EP enough, you might just have to take my word for it and take a listen for free on her website. Check out Million Dollar Bills below and watch the video for hit song Royals. I’ll be waiting for a UK show!
