Lorde - Green Light

You think that's a banger? That's not a banger. This is a banger.

Banger



Big stars make big moves. There’s no room for shy, retiring, downplayed missives in 2017’s musical bear pit. Ed Sheeran may be making huge statements about how this is going to be ‘his year’, but the ginger marauder has underestimated the wonder from down under.

Roaring out of her left-field palace, Lorde is the enigma you don’t bet against. While her debut album was packed with perfectly-paced pop, her returning statement is firmly strapped to an industrial banger and aimed at the moon. Housey piano rolls explode into a thumping dwarf star of a chorus, its call and answer refrain drilling fast and deep. The influence of co-producer Jack Antonoff can be felt, but this is still Lorde to the core.

Of every pop star on the planet right now, Lorde is the only one who feels to have it all nailed down. Never contrived, never forced, and never in doubt, she’s pitched every step of her return perfectly. You want big? This is positively gargantuan. Stephen Ackroyd
