Music Monday: Lorde - Pure Heroine

Today is a chilly,  -13 degree (srsly?!) Monday afternoon.  I'm not planning on leaving the house to embrace the wrath of Chiberia's weather, so here I am relaxing at home with some soothing music.

Right now, I cannot get enough of 17-year-old Ella Yelich-O'Connor, better known by her stagename, Lorde.  Her album Pure Heroine is a favorite at the moment.  I'm sure everyone has gotten a bit sick of hearing the song "Royals" on the radio (as radio stations continue to murder great songs by their endless repeat of the same five songs), but I promise you her album is awesome!  There's something unique about her lyrics that keep me so engage with her songs, but I can't quite put my finger on it.  If someone knows what it is, please let me know! (;

One of my favorites off this album is "Buzzcut Season," it has a mesmerizing melody.  Her performance on Letterman was raw emotion, you can really see how she feels her music and embodies it in a somewhat "weird" dance (as some like to call it).  I get goosebumps when I see videos of her live performances.

If you already love Lorde, you should check out some of the remixes to her songs! This one is the Ryan Hemsworth remix of her song, "Ribs" (props to my friend Chelsea for sharing this with me!). Even Lorde herself tweeted this remix to her followers!  

Hope you enjoyed this post and discovered some new music! Have a happy Monday, and stay warm!
