Lorde and Disclosure brought out a song and it has been my life for the past week.
And now there’s a video and I couldn’t not write a little post on it, even if this is not something that I usually write about.
I’ve been a huge fan of Lorde since her album Pure Heroine came out, just over 2 years ago now. I listened to that album almost every single day on my way to university, when I still lived at home. Meaning that for the 30 minute walk to the train station, the wait for the train, the 25 minute journey to Liverpool THEN the walk from the station to uni, I listened to that album. And I did that twice a day for a year. The lyrics to all of those songs are imprinted into my brain forever and I am more than 100% okay with that. It’s a fantastic album, and you should definitely listen to it if you haven’t.
P.S. My favourite is Tennis Court, which is a contender for my favourite song ever.
Anyway on to this song. I fucking love it. I like Disclosure, and I think they’ve done an excellent job with this song. The lyrics are also killer, I love how they can be interpreted in so many different ways, I wouldn’t have taken them in the way that the video has, but I love that interpretation too.
And after you’ve watched it, read this, it adds another layer to it (taken from Lorde’s tumblr)
And you’ll also feel like this after watching it:
I know that I did.
