Even though we still can’t get enough of the chart-topping Royals, Auckland’s Ella Yelich-O’Connor, a.k.a. Lorde, has released another track off her upcoming LP, Pure Heroine, out September 27. Team builds on the hype that Royals started, with Lorde taking a slightly more subdued approach to glitzy anti-pop. Over an anatomically pulsating drum beat she sighs, “I’m kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air.” Heck. Yeah.
