Published Dec 03, 2013Teenaged New Zealand pop sensation Lorde has moved well past her omnipresent pop track "Royals," now treating new single "Team" to a video.
The spooky, cinematic fairy tale offers up lush, dream-like visuals, with our heroine living it up as royalty in a weird jungle community. It's all a little vague, but she's offered up her own explanation of the clip with the following statement:
WE'RE ON EACH OTHER'S TEAM
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, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was queen. 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. and of this world, i dreamt about tests that didn't need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger. enjoy xx
