PRAISE THE LORDE

by

Nearing the age of 18, Lorde has packed more into her teen years than most do in their twenties and beyond. At 13, she was signed to a major-label record deal; by 15 she had unleashed her first EP. The following year, “Royals” had not only hit but demolished the charts and inspired comparisons likening the New Zealand singer-songwriter to past heralds of the youth revolution like Nirvana. Last year, Pure Heroine demonstrated that she was more than a one-hit wonder and has launched a new era of pop that she may ride even longer than those who preceded her. Along with her brilliant and deeply personal insights on being a teen, Ella Yelich-O’Connor has an undeniable stage presence, proving that star quality is something you’re born with, not taught. She performs tonight with Majical Cloudz.
