Royals – Lorde

February 25, 2013

I spotted this on Sunset in the Rearview last week and I’m very glad I did. From the very opening, with a fairly standard hip hop bump backing pretty female vocals, I knew this song was one to pay attention to. Lorde‘s music arrests my interest in the way she effortlessly melds genres into an eerie atmospheric sound that somehow manages to retain a cheerfulness to it. When the vocals begin singing in harmony the simplicity of the song stops being so evident. All I need to pay attention to are the vocals; the simplicity showcases them. This kiwi artist dropped an entire EP for free entitled “The Love Club” three months ago. If you like this track, it’s worth checking out the EP. Enjoy!
