Local H – Team (Lorde cover)

It’s covers like this that make me wonder who really drives the ship? Songwriters or producers? How can one of last year’s top pop songs translate so well to the rock world. Leave it up to Chicago based Local H for having the right vision and running with it. “I remember going down a Lorde rabbit hole on YouTube last summer, and the song that really stuck with me was ‘Team,'” recalls Local H frontman Scott Lucas. “The lyrics killed me. They were everything I’d been wanting to hear someone say in a pop song. I sorta teared up a little. I tried playing an acoustic version at a show in January, but quickly realized that the song was an anthem and should be rocked out. Besides, acoustic Lorde is the Boss’s territory now.”

I’m fairly certain this Lorde cover is part of the Local H live set…but you should see for yourself.
