16 Year old Ella Yelich-O'Connor, better known by her stage name, Lorde, has started up a storm in her home country of New Zealand with her first single, Royals, that peaked at number one in the New Zealand charts. The Auckland native's EP titled, The Love Club, released not yet a year ago, already has two certified gold, and one certified platinum singles.
(Bonus: Lorde covered one of my favorite bands ever, The Replacements. Check out the track here!)
Her music is minimalistic and sophisticated. It's full of haunting harmonies with an electro-pop backbone, slightly reminiscent of acts like Neon Indian. The Love Club - EP is the most refreshing set of tunes I've heard in a long time.
The singer is currently signed to Universal Music Republic/Lava records and is set to release her full length album sometime this Fall. It's said that the record will feature select songs from The Love Club - EP, as well as some brand new tracks.
Seattle native but currently residing in Phoenix for University, studying Criminology & Criminal Justice.
I take lots of pictures and it's the greatest feeling.
