Review: Lorde – Melodrama

Review: Lorde - Melodrama

Matt Troher

For her sophomore album, twenty-year-old Lorde expands on the stripped down production of her debut, “Melodrama” is filled with lush soundscapes that Lorde utilizes and tells her stories over. Capturing raw emotion better than the majority of her contemporaries, Lorde almost effortlessly toes the line between sincere and showy.
