We hold no reservations claiming that we’re all over Team Lorde like some creeps in jeeps. We also don’t really care who knows it, either. Why, wanna fight about it? Her climb to fame is fascinating and the fact that she consistently knocks off all the other pop princesses from their chart positions without so much as a gimmick is mind bottling. So mind bottling, in fact, that we may just try and pitch the idea to Pinnacle Vodka and make some loot. We’d call it Jailbait Juniper and it would make a mean manjito.
Here’s what she had to say about her new video (which reportedly crashed the Vevo site upon release):
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.
