[Review] Has Lorde finally given up on popular music in ‘Royals’? (Reblogged)

Meaningful Music

Kiwi talent sings about what she doesn’t have, or… doesn’t want to possess.

I found Lorde not long ago. The 16–year–old Kiwi singer/songwriter kinda reminds me of Lana Del Rey by the misty tunes, but her lyrics are much much brighter in some sense. Her songs, despite sounding dark, have that indie, dazzling feels that I absolutely adore. ‘The Love Club’ EP & her debut album ‘Pure Heroine’ can’t be missed!

One thing that got my attention is the lyrics from ‘Royals’ – the single that starts it all for Lorde.

But every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in the bathroom
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room,
We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your time piece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair.
