Lorde takes a swipe at new age culture in the satirical Mood Ring single

Lorde takes a swipe at new age culture in the satirical Mood Ring single
If you thought Solar Power showed a Lorde gone all hippy drippy, well you got that wrong because on new song Mood Ring she’s… well we’ll let her explain:
“This is a song I am very excited about, it’s so much fun to me,” Lorde revealed. “Obviously when making this album I did a deep-dive into 60s, Flower Child culture. I wanted to understand the commune life, dropping out from society and trying to start again. That really resonated to me when writing this album. One thing that occurred to me as a major parallel between that time and our time is our wellness culture and our culture of spirituality, pseudo-spirituality, wellness, pseudo-wellness. Things like eating a macro-biotic vegan diet or burning sage, keeping crystals, reading tarot cards or your horoscope.
These were all things that they were dabbling in back then, and that me and my girlfriends are dabbling in today.” “I was like, ‘I think there’s a pop song in here’. So this is kind of my extremely satirical look at all of those vibes.”
Mood Ring manages to be both wonderfully light and summery and also reflects an aching and desperate soul. Brilliant stuff.
