LORDE. She’s from New Zealand, she’s only 16, she’s amazing. Her hit single “Royals” is everywhere. I hear it three times a day – at least once of my own volition. I’m also now obsessed with her song, “The Love Club.”
If you love your Lorde goodness and want more, here are four songs I recommend.
1. “Warm Water” by Banks. Delicate touch; strong mood. Plus, sexy artsy video. Go!
2. “Primadonna” by Marina and the Diamonds. We love our Marina and the Diamonds around here. Kicky sassy pop song, in true Marina style.
3. “Okay Cupid” by Kitty (formerly Kitty Pryde). Effortless laid back rhymes from the least-expected source. I bet in the early days of hip hop no one anticipated decades later a white Florida girl would be rapping about boys.
4. “Oblivion” by Grimes. Are you on the Grimes fan train yet? I hope so. She’s a little creepy – but good creepy, like Twin Peaks. “Oblivion” is the gateway Grimes video, but if you want more, I also like “Genesis” and “Crystal Ball.”
And if and while you’re going down the Grimes rabbit hole, please do stop by and witness the spectacle that is Brooke Candy. Grimes lists her as a muse, and she shows up on Charli XCX stuff too. Jordan is convinced it’s performance art, but I’m not so sure.
