Lorde: “Royals”

This muscular, minimalist slice of electropop is so mature, so sophisticated in its simplicity that it’s hard to credit that on its release, New Zealand songstress Lorde was a scant 16 years old. Proof positive that pop doesn't have to mean pap; it’s a clever, infectious and affecting recording propelled by seat-shaking bass blended with bitingly witty lyricism. Of course, the demo cut of the disc “The Love Club EP“ is the effortlessly catchy “Royals”, but follow-up hit “Team” is a joy too. It’s an exceptional demo to show off your car system’s subwoofer and speaker quality.
