[mp3] Lorde: “Royals”
January 24th, 2013 by Matt
I’m at work right now, but I can’t wait to get home and enjoy Lorde’s the Love Club in a focused setting. It’ll hook you with its dancefloor-worthy hit, but will keep you focusing on the lyrics when you’re home alone. It’s all the fun of Lana Del Rey without feeling like you’re listening to an abusive relationship.
MP3: Lorde – Royals
I love this song. It’s maybe the first song I’ve heard this year that I know I’ll play over and over again until everyone is around me is sick of it (and then I’ll play it some more). “Royals” talks about Lorde’s attitude listening to songs about excessive riches when she’s more grounded. She’s got lofty goals, but they’re found in friendship, love and fun.
“Royals” is great, but I love all of this EP. Stream it below.
