Meet Lorde – the 16 year old Kiwi, Ella Yelich-O’Connor. She released her first EP online back in December 2012, and “Tennis Courts” is her newest single. “Royals” debuted as #1 on the New Zealand Top 40 on March 15th 2013, and  stayed there for 3 weeks. Don’t forget, she accomplished this while still attending Tacapuna Grammar School on Aukland’s north shore. Basically, this girl is seriously rad (and check out that hair!).

After spending a month there last winter, I’ve got serious love for all things Kiwi. Check out these other equally rad New Zealand native bands:

Six60 – a rock band from the South Island town of Dunedin – a huge reminder of my time in New Zealand.
The Ruby Suns – a kiwi indie band that’s been around for almost a decade!
The Vietnam War – a little bit country, perfect campfire listenings.
