Now today I will be reviewing one kick-ass kiwi chick - Lorde (or her real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor who hails from my mate Jason Te Puia's old stomping ground Auckland NZ) and her E.P. - 'The Love Club'. I am so excited that she has a new album coming out later on this month that I am about to flick poo at the walls (yes you heard me Redi, now clean it bitch!).
Man what is it with kiwi chicks, they are so talented and so arty at the same time think Kimbra, Ladyhawke, Bic Runga, Brooke Fraser etc. Man I don't don't know what is in their water over there but they keep producing these beautiful and talented singers, I think this little monkey is due for a trip to NZ.
This is her debut album called 'The Love Club' and it is awesome. The EP kicks off with beautiful song 'Bravado' the music is beautiful and her voice is divine and just so hauntingly beautiful. The next track is my favourite, it grew on me, then when you realise that the lyrics are about anti-consumerism, then when you see the film clip, this song is legendary, it will be a classic and her voice is perfect!
The next song "Million Dollar Bills' is a bit more upbeat with killer beat and her awesome voice it is just such a cool hip-hop song and has such a happy vibe about it, I absolutely love it. The next song is the title track 'The Love Club' it has such great lyrics and shows her versatility and talent just a really cool song.
Then we move onto the darker 'Biting Down' with it's killer hi-hat and great vocals, it closes out a sensational album. I honestly can't wait for her new album, and at 16 years of age she is only going to get better. I give this 5 shots of whiskey out of 5, seriously it is that good so do yourself a favour and add it to your collection NOW!
Till next week
Peace out my bitches
