Lorde has released the official video for her single ‘Team’, which comes from her debut album Pure Heroine. In the clip we see Lorde, but the focus isn’t on her. According to her Facebook page, the inspiration from the video was this:

This video was borne from a dream I had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations . . . I dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat.

What do you think of the song? Does it hold up against ‘Royals?’
