Lorde, also known as Ella Yelich-O’Connor, has been popular on the other side of the world for quite some time but she’s just bursting on to the scene here in the US. The New Zealand native is just 16 years old but what she lacks in experience, she makes up for with an amazing voice and tremendous songwriting skills.
Her songs are relatively simple, which helps accentuate her amazing vocals. I have always admired singer/songwriters and Lorde has really come up with some infectious melodies. I find myself humming her singles ‘Royals’ and ‘Tennis Court‘ at all times throughout the day. She’s going to be one to watch in the future and I’m excited to hear her debut album, which is scheduled for a release this month.
