Keep up to date with LORDE
Marking her first new single since 2017s Melodrama, Lorde has captured the mood of cautious optimism reigning strong as summer comes anew.
‘Solar Power’ provokes genuinely ethereal qualities. Produced by Jack Antonoff, the track sits in a style far from its predecessors. Light percussion combines with acoustic guitar to create a feel both loose and summerly.
The track is warm, both in theme and lyric. It transports the listener to the most idyllic of summerly scenes. Much comment has been made on evocative musical comparisons. Think George Michael’s ‘Freedom’ or circa 1991 Primal Scream.
It is only fitting for ‘Solar Power’s’ release to come on the day of a solar eclipse. Like the latter, Lorde is a precious rarity.
