Lorde Ends Depression

2021-06-13 by Sowing STAFF | 86 Comments
Summer is almost here in the northern hemisphere, and Lorde is bringing all the positive vibes. Between the release of her latest single, 'Solar Power' and a new album announcement on the horizon, there's literally no reason to be sad anymore - at least according to the official music video.

In a video which emits optimism and is vaguely suggestive that Ella Yelich-O'Connor has joined an island cult, Lorde prances around in a yellow two-piece while a group of zombie residents follow her around and worship the sand she walks on.

Watch the official music video here and feel all your troubles vanish:

I think I'm in love with her

But yeah the video is... hilarious. Like why is there a group of people just standing behind her and why do they look so sad

Lorde watched Midsommar and was like "how can we make this whiter?"

Well here's the answer

i'm sure it's purposeful. she said there's a "cinematic universe" to the music videos so I think a cult reveal is coming

okay, we all agree that this is a summer bop song, BUT WHY IS IT SO DARK HERE?

first of all, notice how no one's having fun. No one's smiling, there are only a few clips showing people (pretending to) smile. And Ella is the only one who dances. are they happy?

secondly, when the camera turns towards Lorde (1:32) you can see her hand gesture saying 'no, don't show it, don't show the trash on the beach' and it's kinda scary. i guess it shows that there's still something that poisons her. and after this part there's a lady just walking, it reminds me of the state in which a person simply exists, not lives.

third, no one is dancing at all. in this few clips showing people dance (2:11), can you call it dancing? more like it's a cult kind of thing.

and in shot "blink three times..." people are just standing there, with no emotion at all (2:03)

'forget all the tears that you've cried, it's over... new state of mind, are you coming my baby?' - it means either a new experience and getting rid of sadness, or entering a cult and clouding the mind.

Sorry, just trying to get the concept here

upd: there's a theory saying that this all beach life is her dream. she was able to completely recreate such a world in her imagination, but she could not make people the same, because in the real world people are in apathy.

Why do ripped guys like showing their torsos? Same reason, because it's nice to feel hot and be appreciated.

Sorry dude. It was always going to be an uphill battle without Murray. The short offseason has wreaked havoc on last year's playoff teams.

Yup, Jokić is mad good but their backcourt just can't compete. Also short af offseason for them aswell. It's a shame since this was supposed to be their season to at least get to the finals if not win it all, they're such a great team when everyone's healthy. Song is kinda meh

unprovable. half of 8 is approximately 4; 8888 is 4 times 8. 4 times 8 is 32, and 32 divided by 2 is 16. so 8888 divisioned by 2 is 32

JustJoe.: I think they're in a good spot, they just need to find a couple of defensive minded vets and they should be good to go. I just love their 1-2 Jokić - Murray punch it's so fun and effective

stormchaser: agree actually & those two have such an enviable synergy between them especially in clutch time also as for defense i think a good rim protector would be most ideal but they could always use defense at any position since michael malone is basically a defensive minded coach running an offensive minded team

"okay fair now cure my depression ASDFP"


it is very intuitive that ⊢(a = {x}, b = {y}) => ((a ∪ b ∈ 2) ≡ (x ≠ y)), from which we define the number two as the cardinality of (a ∪ b), given (a, b) with the conditions above, i.e. '2' in the expression. hope this helps !
