Lorde’s ‘Team’ Video: Put Your Hands Down

Lorde is sitting down for this one, so the dance moves are sadly limited. She makes up for it with this Facebook description, though: "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." If Lorde were not so good at making pop songs, she would make a great full-time blogger. So there, etc.
