This song by a New Zealand teenager is currently tearing up the radio. I enjoy the song, and I'm a MASSIVE fan of this video. I'm guessing it's set in New Zealand (Auckland, where Lorde is from?), but it could be any suburb full of monotonous teenage life.
The shot at 2:00, of the kid just staring up at a dilapidated basketball net, slays me. Really every image of non-glamour is gorgeously framed. Captures the spirit of the song perfectly.
By the way - between Lorde, the Naked and Famous, and Kimbra, are we seeing something of a New Zealand music invasion? That seems like a solid number of hit bands for a relatively small country. NZ is punching above their weight in the music world at the moment.
