I’ve just returned from an awesome three week trip to New Zealand. While there I had hoped to discover some new music to share with you. What I mostly heard was a lot of 70s, 80s and 90s hits being played on the airwaves, with a particular love for Men At Work’s Down Under, making me wonder if I had landed in Australia instead. Of course talk of Lorde and her grammy wins was all the rage on the radio station yet never was it played. So I searched for it on Youtube when I returned and, sure enough, I had heard Royals before. Lorde’s voice is wonderful and the song is good and atuned to today’s youth. But I’m still hearing the thunder! Vegemite sandwich anyone?
