article imageReview: Lorde mesmerizes New York fans at United Palace Theatre Special

New York - Multi-platinum singer-songwriter Lorde performed at the gorgeous venue, United Palace Theatre, in New York City on September 15.
She commenced her set with "Glory and Gore" and immediately broke into one of my favorite songs of hers, "White Teeth Teens."
It was followed by a haunting rendition of her single "Tennis Court," as well as "Buzzcut Season."
Lorde surprised her fans in New York with two covers, which included Kanye West's "Flashing Lights," as well as her glorious rendition of Bon Iver's "Heavenly Father," which she dubbed as a tune about faith. She made both of these songs her own, thanks to her crisp and gratuitous vocals.
Other noteworthy tunes that were featured in her set included "Bravado," "Biting Down" and "Still Sane."
While her breakthrough single and signature tune "Royals" was certainly a crowd favorite, "Ribs" was the one that captivated. The way she got into this song (with her hair snaps and hand gestures) felt like she was in a trance, yet her delivery was convincing and hypnotic. Pure vocal perfection. Would love for the rebellious "Ribs" to be released as a single someday in the future. "You're the only friend I need, Sharing beds like little kids, And laughing 'til our ribs get tough, But that will never be enough," Lorde sang.
It was followed by another popular hit "Team," where the crowd was reciting the lyrics back to her. She closed with "A World Alone."
Overall, Lorde's vocals at the United Palace Theatre were refreshing, delicate and divine. She truly gets better with each show. I had the great fortune to see her at Roseland Ballroom in New York City (before the venue closed down) and she was fantastic there too. Her show garnered an A rating.
