to be honest and I know i'm the guy who made the thread for her, I don't really think her music is that great. She seems like a shit version of Amy Winehouse, minus the groovy jazz arrangements and brilliant songs. I think she's a great songwriter, vocally she isn't anything impressive. Royals is quite good and so is Team. I hope her next album shows another side to her though.

I agree with everything the post above me says. I love her to death, and she's probably going to be my wife when I grow up since we're the same age, but despite how great Royals is her repertoire is nothing to write home about. I do expect great things, though.

Vocally she's nice but nothing like OH MY GOD, but she has this soothing tone and that's something I really like. I think she's got a pretty nice low register, some dense lows. We have to consider she's still pretty young but she definetely has potential to get much farther and that's what I meant, she's a singer we should keep an eye on, because someday she might surprise everyone with something great.

Well, I think she's already surprised a lot of people with the 'Pure Heroine' album. She's by no means a bad singer or artist, I just feel like there's more she can give us.

I agree for her age (17? I can't remember.) She can really dip her voice down there. I wasn't even going to make the OP as she's so young, but considering how mature her voice is I thought I may as well.

Yeah, she's 17 and she has a really mature voice and also a mature personality, from what I've see. I know that discussion the voice type is not the point here, but I think you're right considering her as an Alto. I love her accent Very Happy

i can't really say that matureness is a good thing... besides that is mezmerizing how quickly artists get famous, you can't wait for the next record because a new one will came up and he/her will be the new fashion!

speaking of low notes, I can totally see her being about to hit at least a B2 or a little lower sometime in the future.

I'd say her maturity is a good thing, because it makes her less likely to snap and become a fucked up artist in the future. You can't really say this about many artists around her age. And there will always come a time where a new artist comes along and gets a lot of attention, if the "older" ones are smart, they find a way not to disappear. I think Lorde has the potential to be around for much longer.

Anyway, I'm not sure, but I think there are two harmonies in the background in Buzzcut Season at 2:02 for example. One tops at G♯4 and the other one tops at G♯5, but I'm not really sure, it's barely audible and I don't even know if it's her.

I think there are some B♭2 in the background of Team. Again, not sure... could you check it out?

can you time stamp where the G♯5 it is on this video, because 2.02 only has a C5 in the on the lead vocal track.


Edit- Likewise Team, where's the B♭2

Sorry, I meant the higher harmony that starts at 2:02. The note I think it's G♯5 in the higher harmony is at 2:09. G♯4 in the lower harmony and G♯5 in the higher harmony, but i'm not sure.

Highest I'm hearing at 2.09 is like a B4. you're right it may be there but just completely inaudible.

can you timestamp the Team B♭2

The line starts at 1:00, and somewhere around 1:02 she hits B♭2 I think, it's when she sings "DANcing Around the lies we TELL, DANcing Around big eyes as WELL" in the background. She hits B♭3 in the lead vocals when singing these words and the lower harmony is one octave lower. Is that right?

The G♯5 in Buzzcut Season is the highest note in the higher harmony, but i'm not really sure if it is there. Try to listen to the whole part with the backing vocals to see if you can hear what I mean. Maybe I'm just crazy  Confused

The low backing vocal in Team doesn't sound like her imo.

Yeah, I'm not really sure, but the backing vocals in the chorus are sung by her, I think. But it seems she sings most of the backing vocals in her album, I don't know if she worked with background singers. Considering background notes is always hard because sometimes you can't really tell if it is the singer or not.

I agree. I hear a B♭2 but it sounds like a guy singing it.

It's probably not her. I mean, she's 17. If she can go down to B♭2 now, imagine how low she would be able to go in the future  Laughing

What about the lower harmony in Still Sane? It goes down to C3, I think.


"E --- very -- thing - feels -- RIGHT" and then again "Chase paper get BY"
(D4 -- G3 ---- F3 ---- E3 ---- C3)

I hope this isn't too confusing, I tried to pitch every syllable.
The higher harmony does this part one octave higher, so it goes like D5/G4/F4/E4/C4


the line starts at 0:54 and the note is at 1:00

Did I get it right this time? Does it sound like her? I wanna help out, but I didn't have anything useful so far Sad

To be honest, I didn't pay much attention to her harmonies (unless, they stood out pretty well.) I just focused on her lead vocals.

I get it, it's hard considering harmonies because it's hard to tell if it is the singer or not, so that's ok. The C3 (if there is a C3) in Still Sane is not really audible, you can hear the higher harmony better.

I'm not saying it's not her because of her age, I was just agreeing that it's probably not her and then I was just making an observation that if she can sing that low now that she's 17, she'll probably go much lower when she gets older. I think I didn't make myself clear.
