'I mean, because I started all of this when I was like 14, 15 so I didn't have a lot of gig history before that," she told Radio X. 'But I was in a band when I was like at school called Extreme. It was a rock band."
"We were the 12-year-old version of extreme. There were a lot of bad moves. There was a lot of getting people to clap," she said. "I distinctly remember thinking 'I am not cool in this moment. This is not a cool year for me.' There is a touch of footage online. If you like a laugh it's quite funny."
That footage is available through a simple search: "Lorde at age 12 (2009) with her school band." The "Green Light" singer and her peers had a prodigious taste: They performed "Man on the Silver Mountain" by Rainbow (which originally featured Ronnie James Dio) and "Edie (Ciao Baby)" by the Cult. See her old band perform a gighere.

50's last album Animal Ambition debuted in 2014 and his last single (as a lead artist) dropped last May. He's been teasing Street King Immortal since at least 2012 -- an album that has had "release dates" in 2012, 2013 and 2016. Maybe this is the year to make it happen! 50 also has a mixtape project called Reloaded in the works -- his last tape dropped two years ago. All signs say 50's back in business. See him with 2 Chainzhere.
Earlier this week, Demi Lovato played second fiddle to Fallon for the latest installment and the duo discussed selfies, spring flings and why they're "besties forever and ever."
Demi held her own in the comedy department, practicing kissing on an Ed Sheeran pillow (Fallon's had Mario Lopez's face on it). They also did a quickfire round of "Ew" ratings and evaluated everything from Thin Mints to Tom Wilkinson. Watch ithere.
"Barely Alive" is the first song I released this year and I think it's really indicative of the kind of music that I'm creating right now. At the end of 2016 I knew that I wanted to record an EP but I was lacking direction. I was really reaching for things outside of me to spark the creative process but it really wasn't working-I was looking for something outside of myself.
Last summer when I started writing "Barely Alive" with Mia Minichiello and Matias Mora (both extremely talented and hard-working musicians-and wonderful friends as well!) I tried to come into the writing process with an objective. I wanted to create this upbeat pop song with a lot of energy. Unfortunately, at the time I was also going through the end of a relationship. So here I was, trying to make a "happy" song, when that wasn't my truth.
In a way "Barely Alive" was therapeutic to me because it offered me a way of emoting the state I was in at that time. I think all three of us felt that in the writing space and that's what made the song blossom into what it was.
What makes "Barely Alive" so special to me is that it's really a testament to the kind of material I want to continue making and a good introduction to what my EP will be like. "Barely Alive" is about recognizing my feelings and owning up to the fact that I was hurt. That kind of honesty and truth is what I want all my music to have. I want it to speak to the reality of the ups and downs of living a life.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the J.Venright here!
