Lorde Releases Emotionally Charged ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’ Video

by | PopCrush

‘The Hunger Games’ fans are counting down the days until ‘Mockingjay — Part 1′ hits theaters, but Lorde is here to help with the wait. She just dropped her new video for ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’!

The visual is comprised of a number of scenes: Lorde alone in a hotel room, Lorde dancing in a sparsely lit room, Lorde sailing through the crowd of an elegant party, Lorde — clad in all-white — sitting at a bus stop. The images, both individually and put together in the video, provide a haunting isolation suitable for ‘The Hunger Games.’

Throughout the entire clip, Lorde’s emotion is a trap ready to spring at any moment. At first, she’s incredibly controlled. By the end of the video, however, she lets loose and dances with abandon, exhibiting “the red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart.” (Also, we need to give a huge shoutout to her incredible, retro pompadour.)
