Music Monday: Lorde (@lordemusic)

Sixteen-year-old New Zealand native, Lorde, has captured the attention of music fans around the world this summer with her hit, “Royals, and now you can stream her debut album, Pure Heroine (http://www.mtv.com/videos/misc/958138/vh1-exclusive-album-premiere-pure-heroine-by-lorde.jhtml) thanks to MTV. Lorde’s pop-electro sound differentiates her from the crop of female pop artists dominating the charts, as does the newcomer’s age and sense of authenticity. Discovered thanks to a video of her singing at a talent show at age 12, Lorde is interested in making songs that are not only catchy, but also smart. She told Teen Vogue earlier this year that,”I think young people are the most creative and the coolest—people that we should be learning from. Even when I’m at a party, I’m analyzing it and thinking about it in the context of how I would write about it. That side of me never switches off.”
