The new video for Lorde’s new single “TEAM” from Pure Heroine premiered today.
In her own words, as posted on Facebook:
“This video was borne from a dream I had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was Queen. I dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. And of this world, I dreamt about tests that didn’t need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger. Enjoy.” – Lorde
For such a young artist her music speaks volumes about the experiences she’s had through her own words. Lorde is truly a magnificent artist who’s young age transcends her abilities. We give “Team” a 9 on the FUZZscale!
