Ella Yelich-O’Connor’s name might not ring a bell, but her stage name sure will. If you’ve been paying attention to chart topping songs these past couple of weeks you might have caught notice of Lorde. Lorde is a sixteen year old New Zealand electropop singer-songwriter quickly gaining lead in the top of the charts. Her first EP, The Love Club EP, released in March features the hit "Royals", which currently sits at #1 on US Alternative/Rock charts. Her album, Pure Heroine, will be released on September 27, 2013 with Universal. Keep an eye on this one, there’s a strong feeling she will be making quite the impression.
