Erin's Albums of the Year 2017

#1: Lorde - Melodrama

Pure Heroine soundtracked my senior year of high school. I had waited years for Lorde to come back, and when she did, she came back better than ever. Produced by herself & another favorite artist of mine, Jack Antonoff, Lorde's second album Melodrama is raw, and shows both vulnerability and roughness at the same time. Basically, it makes you feel EVERYTHING... All at once. And that's why it's my top pick for 2017.

Top song picks: Homemade Dynamite, Green Light, & Supercut
