"We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair"
Now when a pop-tune pops, it can break out all over the planet. I've been loving the myriad of covers done to Kiwi-darling Lorde's smash hit, Royals (see the US version here).
which is pretty smokin', yeah? Well, I guess her sultry voice and the catchy tune has captured the hearts of many.
A quick search on YouTube produces a variety of musical versions.
But none are so fantastically suited to my day than Alex Boye's African version.
I love the strong visuals of the video as well- reminding me of one of my most enjoyable "fashion"/photography books called Natural Fashion: Tribal Decoration from Africa which depicts some incredible displays of expression using items cleverly culled from the environment. Which is kinda, exactly what the Citizen Rosebud's Fresh Picks are all about.
This is the second installment of our new culture feature, mid-week: Mind the Music. Each Wednesday, we'll be posting some great tunes to get your toes tapping, and you, through to the end of your work week. Happy listening!
