If I hear the words: “The next big thing” one more time then I may have to go on a rampage with a rusty saw whilst “Madame Butterfly” plays very loudly in the background! It seems artists today cannot be original, there are so many Next Adeles out there I’m surprised the woman in question could pick out herself in a line-up. But lo and behold, the answers to my prayers came from New Zealand of all places with the introduction of Lorde!
She’s been on everyone’s lips since her single “Royals” hit airwaves earlier this year and dominated the charts across the world. How do you like that One Direction?! You’re not the only teens kicking butt on the music scene this year! At the tender age of sixteen, she’s already achieved more than most artists dare to dream of. Her secret? She’s an original.
With her spooky features, chunky boots and a voice that gives me the chills in all the right places, Lorde has spent the best part of her life locked in the studio clicking into microphones and writing passionate yet delicate lyrics. Having been sighed to Universal when she was twelve she’s spent a good four years developing her unique sound and now she’s reaping the rewards with global acclaim, album sales a plenty and her dignity remains well and truly in her back pocket. The next Lorde is just around the corner, I’m sure, but right now we’re loving the original!
