Song of the Day: "Writer in the Dark" by Lorde

My song of the day is "Writer in the Dark" by Lorde, off her latest album "Melodrama." This is a low-key, melancholy and wistful song by the New Zealand-bred songstress, who has now reached a ripe old age of 20.

Her voice is such aged whiskey, her melodies are lovely and her words are remarkable: "I am my mother's child/I'll love you till my breathing stops/I'll love you 'til you call the cops on me." She sounds like she's been suffering and learning and performing for 50 years.

It's a great slice of indie-pop, and I would do well to listen to the whole album.
