Lorde is giving me serious Kate Bush feels

When Lorde released Green Light, I lost my shit. Every bit of that song spoke to me directly. I love the movements within the song. I love how she sings it. When I found out what the song was about, I felt that she was speaking directly to me. I bought the single off of…Read more Lorde is giving me serious Kate Bush feels
