WATCH: Lorde’s new video for ‘Team’

Queen bee Lorde is vastly improving her odds of being more talked about than New Zealand’s other great export this year, The Hobbit. Is her music hotter than the dragon Smaug? Watch her new video clip and decide for yourself. With Lorde’s signature voice manipulation, clever grooves and existential musings, ‘Team’ is the songstress at her best, gifting us a fitting successor to her first hit ‘Royals.’

Directed by LA based music videographer  Young Replicant, the film clip is more narrative driven than Lorde’s previous releases, but no less visually stunning. Desolate buildings backdrop the singer’s dystopic vision of a youth-ruled, adrenaline-fulled society – but one where they “sure know how to run things.”

Australian fans need not wait long to see Time Magazine’s Most Influential Teenager of the Year perform again – Lorde will be playing at the touring Laneway Festival early next year.
