I hope you’re all in the mood for a bunch of music, because there are so many great new songs out at the moment I will be going on a sharing spree.
This song grabbed me upon first listen, and it’s gotten out of hand on this end, like hitting repeat dozens of times bad. This young lady, going by the name Lorde, hails from New Zealand and, amazingly enough, she’s only 16.
This is what she wrote when she published this video:
lately i’ve been waking up at 4 or 5 a.m., turning things over in my head. so much to think about, so much to break down and process and decide. i’m only at the beginning, but it has always been important to me that everything feels cool, feels right. this song means a hell of a lot to me, and to others, and i guess what i tried to do is make something you could understand. a lot of people think teenagers live in this world like ‘skins’ every weekend or whatever, but truth is, half the time we aren’t doing anything cooler than playing with lighters, or waiting at some shitty stop. that’s why this had to be real. and i’m at that particular train station every week. those boys are my friends. callum’s wearing a sweater that used to belong to me. so it all feels right, and i can sleep. thanks for being with me all the way so far — so much to come, such great heights. i’m just getting started. enjoy xx
I am certainly looking forward to what the future hold for this young lady. It looks very promising indeed.
