I am so OBSESSED!!!!!!!!!!!
Lorde is so amazing! When I first heard Royals on the radio, I was like, eh. For some reason I decided to check more of her music out, and now I love her so much!
Her lyrics are amazing. If I were there kind of person to use the word “sick”, I would definitely say that there are some sick beats on this album. Also, I love the echoing. While she uses it in a lot/most of the songs, there’s still a lot of variation.
Tennis Court – This is the third song that I fell in love with off of her album. I love the “yeah’s”. They’re so cool! “Pretty soon I’ll be getting on my first plane, I’ll see the veins of my city like they do in space”
400 Lux – This is a nice slow song with a heavy bass.
Royals – Of course there’s this song. And it’s not that I disliked the song at first, it’s more that I just kind of wrote it off. It’s good, but not my favorite on the album.
Ribs – this one is the second favorite song that I fell in love with. And do you know how I discovered it? Through iTunes’ free singles of the week ( sometimes they’re but sometimes they’re worth it!). I really like the soft steady brat in the background.
Buzzcut Season – This is my FAVORITE song off the album. I love the words. I love the soft background music. I love the echoing. It’s amazing! And I love the message.
Team – This is the first Lorde song I fell in love with. I love how she says “send the call out” but it sounds like “the call out send”. And I love how she says “I’m kinda over being told to throw my hands up in the air”.
Glory and Gore – Another favorite. The echoing in her songs is awesome. “We mean it, but I promise we’re not mean”. Her lyrics are awesome.
Still Sane – The vocals are extra prominent in this song. Really pretty.
White Teeth Teens – There’s a cool thumping beat on this song. It has an echoey beat. And she definitely reaches some high points on this one.
A World Alone – I like the “oohing”. And the sort of vibrating/humming sound in the background.
No Better – I love how she smooshes so many words into the verses. It’s kinda different from her other songs.
Bravado – There are some definite background vocals on this one, and a deep bass. It makes me feel almost like I could be in a high-ceilinged church.
Million Dollar Bills – The echoing is especially cool in this song, and then all of a sudden an awesome beat is dropped. And sounds like an awesome dance song that would be played at a hipster club.
The Love Club – I’m not sure how to even describe this song. I guess if Lorde made cutesy songs, this is kind of what it would sound like?
Biting Down – I’m not quite sure what I think of this song. The beginning is kind of strange. Well, actually the whole thing is sort of strange.
Swingin Party – I’m not quite sure what to think of this one yet, but the vocals are definitely the prominent feature again on this track (even more so), and I kinda like it.
