Ella Yelich-O’Connor ofte Lorde is amper 16 jaar, maar weet nu al de hele wereld op zijn knieen. Pure aanbidding en dit na amper 1 EP'tje. Lorde wordt door velen vergeleken met Lana Del Rey, maar is een pak positiever en opgewekter.
Laten we haar zichzelf maar voorstellen:
"My name is Ella, that's who I am at school, hanging out with friends, while I'm doing homework. But when I'm up on stage, Lorde is a character.
I actually didn’t really have a specific sound in mind when I started recording. I’ve always listened to hip-hop and electronic music, and also full-on top 40 pop. I really like minimalist music, too. James Blake is an artist who does that really well, using something like three sounds on a song and somehow making it explosive. I don’t play any instruments, so my voice needs to have the focus. My vocal-scape is really important."
