Track of The Week - Lorde - Royals

This week’s track comes from the sublime talent of Lorde, with the track Royals. Have a listen below:

       Real name Ella Yelich-O’Connor from New Zealand, she is at the time of writing only 16(!) and yet her song writing and vocal prowess belie her years.
       I love how the electronic production is effective and yet sparse – to allow the vocals to take centre stage, with great use of harmonies and layering.
       It would be unfair to compare, but her vocals bring to mind Florence Welch, Marina Diamandis or Lana Del Rey. She’s certain to be headed for big things, so watch this space!

       You can check out another favourite of mine, the track Team by clicking HERE.

       Want more? Her debut album Pure Heroin is set for release at the end of this month, but in the meantime you can listen to her EP The Love Club in its entirety by clicking HERE.
       You can also find the website for Lorde HERE.
