Pure Heroine by Lorde
What can one say about Lorde’s first album, Pure Heroine? Some would say bizarre, dark, unable to understand. But I would say it is a poetic masterpiece, painting a picture of teenage angst in its finest. The way she is able to relate to today’s youth is remarkably accurate and refreshing.
It also paints another picture; the indulgences in which today’s artists take advantage of too much, and how so many of us have only dreamed about such extravagancies. Lorde ( real name Ella Yelich-O’Connor) is only 17 years old, but already has such a complex understanding of the world today, and reflects that into her work.
As her career goes on, I hope Lorde will continue to reflect those opinions in so many more songs, just as she did in this fantastic album!
