Must Purchase Album: Lorde’s Pure Heroine

I’ve played Lorde’s new album repeatedly since getting it.  You’d think the hype from her song Royals would have made me jump all over listening to her EP back when it was released, but I resisted (I hate when I do that).  At the beginning of September I purged on The Love Club and now I’m obsessing over Pure Heroine (I had to resist the urge to make a cheesy addictive joke…).


It’s an album that I love listening to all the way through, it sort of has the drum machine feel of the XX, with Lana Del Rey moments mixed with a little hip hop flare.  I just can’t believe she is 16, when I was that age the majority of my time was spent either watching Law & Order: SVU or playing Neopets, #perspective.

Here are some of my favourite songs off the album so far, in no particular order:

400 Lux

Love it when she sings “you buy me orange juice…”

White Teeth Teens

I think I begin to full body sway every time I hear this song, I can’t help it.


How old were you when you revelled without a care Lorde? 10? WHY DO I FEEL SO OLD??
