Acclaimed New Zealand-born singer Lorde has premiered the official music video for her latest single Tennis Court.
The past four months have seen the 16 year old Aucklander, real name Ella Yelich-O’Connor, rise from relative unknown to big pop stuff in her homeland. Earlier this month Tennis Court became her second consecutive New Zealand Top 40 chart topper, matching the March success of her debut single Royals. In addition to that, her debut EP The Love Club peaked at #2 on the NZ album countdown and also reached #8 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart. Not bad going for a teenager who is still finishing her studies.
The video for Tennis Court is simple to say the least, but it definitely succeeds in drawing attention to not only the song’s buzzing, electronica and catchy lyrics, but also to Lorde herself who sings to the camera with the intense confidence of a self-assured international pop star in the making.
