Lorde is, at least in my mind, a growing musician whose snowballing fame can be compared to that of the earlier years of Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus. However, her appeal comes not from being a "child star," but from her musical integrity and ability to keep it in tact through the thick of the music industry. Her music has not just been a fad inside a generation, but actually a piece that can be respected and discussed.
One of the best things that develops from good music is when other musicians recognize a true artist when others don't. For instance, we have been thrown countless remixes of "Royals," but today we have a cover of "Team" by Wolf Saga. Wolf was inspired to make this one almost like an ode to Lorde, giving it a very epic feel. Like his cover of "Young Folks," Wolf Saga stacks on Lyon for her high pitched, yet soothing female vocals over a poppy, 80's rendition of Lorde's original.
This one is an obvious cover gem as soon as the tape rolls. Check it out now and see more from Wolf Saga on his Soundcloud.
