It’s not everyday that unreleased Lorde surfaces, much less a collaboration with Yoni Wolf of alt hip hop and indie rock band WHY?, so Sway is a very pleasant surprise. The two linked up on Tumblr before hitting up the studio together. Sway carries the dark fidgeting bewitchment of Lorde’s earlier offerings and some of the mellifluous richness of Melodrama. How it never ended up as an official release on any album eludes me. We gladly sway in the light of the “disco ball” with Lorde.
