Lorde has definitely figured out how to get everybody on her "Team". The video for her song Team plays out more like a theatrical movie than a music video. It's one of the more original music videos that I've seen in quite a while. Which is probably why it crashed the Vevo servers when it went up yesterday.
Lorde posted to her Facebook page to explain what was going through her head when making the video:
“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” she said. “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.”
Lorde also let fans ask her questions about the new video Twitter:
She told one fan that it was really important for her to "cast REAL people with real faces" as opposed to artifical Hollywood looking actors I guess.
Well it all worked for her because the video is amazing.
