Album Review: Lorde – Solar Power

Four years after the release of her sophomore album, Melodrama, Lorde graces us with her presence yet again, with a freshness in her sound that supersedes the melancholy heartbreak anthems of her predecessors. This time, the vocalist has found inspiration both in her home country of New Zealand and in her love of summer; it feels like you’re on a beach somewhere, eyes closed with the sun blazing down on you.
