Lorde's "Team" - Chromatik's Tune of the Day

Katy Perry might have released a song called "Dark Horse" last year, but the actual dark horse in pop music was a sixteen year old angsty teen from New Zealand named Lorde, that made dark hip-hop infused pop. Her breakout hit, "Royals" set the bar high for her follow-up single, but when Lorde released "Team" it became clear that she has a knack for melody and attitude that most of her older contemporaries seem to lack. "Team" is a soaring, electropop anthem that gives a special shout out to her home country. You may not know a thing about New Zealand, but Lorde's conviction on this song makes a pretty compelling argument to try and throw all your money at booking a ticket to Aukland.
