Track of The Day #411 Lorde – Team



Probably my favourite track off her album Pure Heroine – Team is a dystopian look at teenage cliques and initiations.Lorde says about the track

This video was borne from a dream I had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was queen. I dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. and of this world, I dreamt about tests that didn’t need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger.”

It encompasses Lorde’s stark take on her music, often looking at the darker side of teenage life
