4) She Really Does Have The Best Hair

In a pop world full of candy floss wigs and half shaved scalps, Lorde would stand out just because she still has her own hair. And what a head of hair it is!

Throughout the night, numerous fans murmured in awe, “Her hair...”

I mean, look at it. It’s gorgeous.

 

5)¬†She’s Going To Be Huge

The crowd that assembled at Le Poisson Rouge last night was a strange mix of girls in their late teens wearing flower crowns, mainstream couples in their mid-20s, excited pop enthusiasts, corporate bros, and chic SoHo gals (and a few middle aged men who were probably from the record company). The crowd was also undoubtedly enthusiastic about Lorde.¬†Everyone seemed to know all the words to all of her already released songs–and¬†enthusiastically listened to her new cuts.

A lot of up-and-coming pop stars have an early and ardent fanbase, but Lorde’s seems to already cut through a variety of demographics that don’t usually go out for pop music, which means there’s a bigger chance that her debut album will strike a more universal chord.

The one fault in her set seemed to be that she left the audience wanting more. People applauded for a few minutes, waiting for an encore that didn’t come. There was marked disappointment from the guys around me.

“Well, I guess that’s it,” one young man in a crisp gingham shirt said to his friends.

“She doesn’t have any more songs,” his friend replied.

“Nah,” said the young man. “It’s past her curfew.”
