Last year, footage of a young Lorde surfaced of the New Zealand star performing at her school’s battle of the bands competition and we were totally blown away. Can you remember what talents you had when you were 12? Probably just the ability to do multiplication and play a mean game of tag, right?
Well now even more of Lorde’s remarkable musical past has been discovered. Songs from a band called And They Were Masked featuring a 16-year-old Lorde was dug up and even though it shows very little resemblance to the music she makes now, it’s still incredibly impressive. The album on Bandcamp called Characters is self-described as “future noir” music whose influences include Fugazi, Mars Volta and PJ Harvey.
