Now I know people either love or hate Lorde and honestly, I fully understand. She is not for everyone, that is for sure. Now let’s back up. I love music. It speaks to me, tells my story and invokes all types of emotion in me. I love it. It’s great. Really. When I discovered “Lorde Radio” on Pandora, I just wanted to hear more Lorde. At the time, she was new to the scene at the time and I really appreciated her sound. Her edginess, depth, and uncanny ability to have each song accompanied by the dopest beats. Like seriously. Everything I love.
I have now been sucked into this world of alternative, electronic, dream pop, indie-electro, rock…..music. It’s so many things, but awesome is definitely what it all has in common. I would much rather listen to this radio than so R&B stuff because R&B puts me in my feelings and I get all emotional and start feeling like a little baby when the tears start flowing. But, most of the time, I just want to vibe and flow. So this is definitely my choice. Some of my new found favorite artists now that I highly recommend are : The Xx (who Rihanna sampled from for her Rated R album), Chet Faker, Lana Del Ray (I was already vibing with her), Purity Ring, Tove Lo & The Neighbourhood.
This is the only way I can describe these artists:
The Xx : “I want to sit in a dark room and lay down peacefully, but I’m not depressed I promise”
Chet Faker : “I love love, but at the same time that shit bites, but I need something cool to sing along to so people I don’t know can tell me I have great taste in music”
Lana Del Ray : “I AM DEPRESSED…….and her voice is beautiful too”
Purity Ring : “Just great. Doesn’t matter how you feel. Their music adjusts to you”
Tove Lo : “I don;t even do drugs but her words are so sincere”
The Neighbourhood : “The best things since sliced bread”
P.S And on Lorde radio they play “Skin” by Rihanna, the best and cleanest sex song ever…I promise you.
