  1. I get very ‘ella’s rendition of a summer hit’ meets ‘an allegory for the cult of individualism’ meets ‘literal cult’ energy

  2. The "Can you reach me, No, you can't." part is so familiar.. i think it's the trend on tiktok "Have you ever been inlove? — I don't think so. — Do you want me to describe it to you?" Dialogs sounds alike.

  3. Hmmm, feels like there's more to this song than what's been retold in this video. Lorde is cerebral like that, which makes the upcoming album and era all the more exciting.

  4. The chorus at the end is a sample of Come Together by Primal Scream but instead she’s singing Solar Power 💡 ☀️

  5. 0:27 waddafark u talkin'bout? upbeat cut? Girl, u r high on something? That is not upbeat cut in the intro. I dunno watcha takin', but u is trippin' on somethin'somethin'.

  6. Actually, the “can I kick it” is a nod to Rock DJ by Robbie William’s as mentioned in another interview she has done 😊

  7. [Verse 1]
    I hate the winter, can't stand the cold
    I tend to cancel all the plans (So sorry, I can't make it)
    But when the heat comes, something takes a hold
    Can I kick it? Yeah, I can

    [Pre-Chorus]
    My cheeks in high colour, overripe peaches
    No shirt, no shoes, only my features
    My boy behind me, he's taking pictures
    Lead the boys and girls onto the beaches
    Come one, come all, I'll tell you my secrets
    I'm kinda like a prettier Jesus

    [Chorus]
    Forget all of thе tears that you've cried
    It's ovеr (Over, over, over, over)
    It's a new state of mind
    Are you coming, my baby?

    [Verse 2]
    Acid green, aquamarine
    The girls are dancing in the sand
    And I throw my cellular device in the water
    Can you reach me? No, you can't (Aha)

    [Pre-Chorus]
    My cheeks in high colour, overripe peaches
    No shirt, no shoes, only my features
    My boy behind me, he's taking pictures (He's taking pictures)
    Lead the boys and girls onto the beaches
    Come one, come all, I'll tell you my secrets
    I'm kinda like a prettier Jesus

    [Chorus]
    Turn it on in a new kind of bright
    It's solar (Solar, solar, solar, solar)
    Come on and let the bliss begin
    Blink three times when you feel it kicking in

    [Outro]
    That solar-olar-olar power
    Solar-olar-olar power
    Solar-olar-olar power
    Solar-olar-olar power
    Solar-olar-olar power
    Solar-olar-olar power

  8. This looks, feels and sounds like such a fresh breath of air, but the album is gonna be darker I expect
    You never know lorde with all these surprises
    It may be of the theme that though there is happiness, loads hides underneath
    A secretive sort of thing here
    SO EXCITED
