Watch: Disclosure - Magnets feat. Lorde
Lorde gifts us a striking new video.
After much anticipation, Lorde and Disclosure released collaborative track Magnets off the brothers' new album Caracal last week, and Lorde has taken things to a whole new level with a killer (quite literally) performance in its video accompaniment. The narrative clip is Rihanna-esque in its brutally vengeful, yet beautifully empowered, nature. Featuring dark themes of infidelity, abuse and all the power inequalities that can riddle relationships, Lorde turns every old trope on its head with a huge, visually stunning and politically on-point twist at the end.
one of my life goals has always been "to one day play a hitgirl who pretends to seduce then burns alive douchey boyfriends"— Lorde (@lordemusic) September 29, 2015
