I am sure all of you have seen this video and have heard this song.
Lorde is the 16-year-old wonderkind who is tearing up the charts and proving artistry is still alive and thriving in popular music. Today Buzznet was invited to see her perform on top of the Hollywood Tower Hotel for LA’s ALT 98.7. I knew she would be great live, but she was for many unexpected reasons.
Live the New Zealand native is poised, sultry and captivating. Her electronic/pop/indie/alternative sound is refreshing and her voice live is beyond impressive. She has a beautiful lower register and when she reaches higher she has incredible control over her instrument. I was very impressed as she ran thought about 5 songs ending with her hit, “Royals.” We only had a taste of what she can offer live and I can only image what a full show would be like. I hope she gets the same amount of attention Lana Del Rey did last year, she trutly deserves it.
Also to note she is just beautiful and her early 2000s Keri Russell hair made me green with envy. So exciting to see a talent like he’s being embraced by popular culture and I am anxious to give her new debut album, Pure Heroine a listen. #musicrules
