Pure Heroine is the debut album from New Zealander Ella Yelich-O’Connor, who is better known as Lorde. She was spotted at the young age of 12 singing at a talent show in her hometown near Auckland and subsequently signed to Universal. She shot to prominence in early 2013 with a hugely popular EP, The Love Club, which produced single “Royals.” The record was written with producer Joel Little and showcased her indie-tinged electro-pop sound.

Snakadaktal are a Melbourne based indie pop band/dream pop band which formed in 2009. This is their debut album. Their 2011 self-title EP created a lot of hype which in turn created a lot of anticipation for this debut album.
This Album can be spilt into two halves with the first half featuring their single Hung On Tight and Fall Underneath. The second half which I prefer starts with The Sun I with solo guitar and vocals which builds into the next track The Sun II which adds more layers and introduces the next track’s Sleep and Union which are highlights in the The Sun series of songs which itself could be an EP. The album finishes with the appropriately named The Sun III. All in all this is a great album. A great debut and should be something you add to your collection.
Snakadaktal have announced a national tour which kicks off in August. See them at the Metro Theater in Sydney on Friday the 30th for less than $30 Bargain. Tickets here.
