The Kiwi singer-songwriter’s comeback single is a breezy, sun-kissed slice of summer, while its joyful official video captures a day well spent at the beach. It’s a far cry – you would think – from the events that unfold in Ari Aster’s 2019 horror, which NME called “genuinely disturbing”.
That hasn’t stopped one fan, however, who’s made a connection between the two with the YouTube parody ‘Solar Power by Lorde but it’s Midsommar’.
Beginning in a dark, cold location (“I hate the winter“), the video soon transports us to Midsommar‘s sunnier cult dancing scenes before building to an unsettling, fiery finale. You can watch the parody below:
“The cult dance while Lorde singing the word ‘Solar Power’. Chef’s kiss,” wrote one viewer in the comments section. Another said: “I am amazed by the way [the] lyrics and every scene perfectly blend [with] each other. Well done.”
