After some technical difficulties, the official video for Lorde‘s latest single, “Team,” is now available for all the world to see. Born from a dream from the seventeen-year-old starlet, the clip for the Pure Heroine-featured track features a couple of guys doing what appears to be some dirt bike jousting. Lorde also stars in the flick, as she can be seen performing the album’s second release. She had this to say regarding the aesthetic:
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
Lorde’s Pure Heroine is out now.
