Watch Lorde’s “Team” Video

Get a look inside the mind of New Zealand pop sensation Lorde in her new video for “Team.”

Set in some sort of post-apocalyptic, Mad Max universe, the video depicts Lorde, sporting some sweet corn rows, ruling an adult-less society where kids are forced to joust on motorcycles with baseball bats for weapons. It’s very Thunderdome-esque. On Facebook, the singer wrote the idea for the video came to her in a dream one night.


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
