Lorde was 16 years old at the time Pure Heroine was released, which directly influenced its overall themes of youth and teenage angst. While these common teenage issues obviously resonated with her peers, I still found myself in my early 20’s diving headfirst into this album and listening to it on repeat for weeks. Listening back reminds me of the time when you couldn’t turn on a radio station without hearing “Royals” a few times an hour, a catchy bop critiquing how mainstream culture glamorizes wealth, fame, and status. But Pure Heroine has so much more to offer than just the hit single. Tracks like “Buzzcut Season” and “Ribs” offer a vocally striking and lyrically thought-provoking performance that would keep any pop-lover hooked."
