Here Are the Shiniest Reactions to Lorde’s ‘Solar Power’ Single & Music Video

, , Comments Off on Here Are the Shiniest Reactions to Lorde’s ‘Solar Power’ Single & Music Video

Lorde’s fans are soaking up every last drop of her comeback single “Solar Power” and its summery music video.

For Billboard’s song review, Jason Lipshutz writes that “Solar Power” shows Lorde’s “newfound euphoria, first in an intimate acoustic format, then in a swaying sing-along when the drums kick in with a minute to spare.” Lorde told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe following the song’s Thursday release about its inspiration — Primal Scream’s 1990 song “Loaded,” and not George Michael’s “Freedom! ’90” as fans had speculated. But once they heard Phoebe Bridgers and Clairo sing background vocals on Lorde’s track, fans felt like they were hearing Lana, Anna and Fontana singing “Stupid Cupid” on the beach during the 2001 coming-of-age flick The Princess Diaries.

Other fans thought the “Solar Power” music video was her take on Midsommar, the 2019 folk horror film. Either way, when the heat comes, something takes hold, and it’s definitely Lorde’s yellow matching tank top and midi skirt outfit galavanting across the beach as the New Zealand-based singer gathers her followers to sing and dance along to her blissful summer anthem. Blink three times when you feel the spirit of the turning season kicking in!
