watch the music video for lorde’s “yellow flicker beat”

today is ella yelich-o’connor’s eighteenth birthday, a perfect occasion for the artist who performs as lorde to share the music video for “yellow flicker beat,” a pillar of the hunger games: mockingjay part i soundtrack.  lorde tapped emily kai bock for the director’s chair, yielding an end result that has appropriately been drawing comparisons to the work of david lynch.  her singular form of dancing is on full display as well, and it’s further emphasized by the rather maximalist approach to the hook for “yellow flicker beat.”  maximal in comparison to lorde’s usual minimalism, at least.  check out the video below.
