Lorde - Royals

Feels Like: Lana Del Ray, Lily Allen, MIA, Ellie Goulding, Adele

16-year old Kiwi sensation Lorde has a sound that is much more mature than her age would suggest. While other recent teen sensations have either quickly gone stale (Birdy) or proven that they are completely idiotic (Chief Keef), Lorde seems to have her head in the right place. Like DIY-Lily Allen, Lorde's music feels organic, and the directions in which it can evolve seem endless. Upbeat, lush, and endlessly repeatable, her debut 5-song EP, The Love Club, is a must listen.
