Riff: Lorde – “Team”

Sep 17, 2013

We live in cities you’ll never see on screen/Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run free

from Team lyrics by Lorde

Continuing the anti-glamour themes she addressed in “Royals,” hipster-pop’s most precocious teen bigs up her Auckland hometown’s ‘there’s no I in team’ sense of community while insisting that she has absolutely no interest in throwing her hands up in the air like she doesn’t care; [LISTEN].
