Covered: LOCAL H performs "Team" by LORDE

  • Written by 

Like most of you, I have not seen LOCAL H with new drummer, Ryan Harding. Well, until today. A video has surfaced in which LOCAL H performs a stellar cover of "Team," the recent hit by LORDE. It's a fantastic rendition that manages to infuse the low-key track with the kind of energy that LOCAL H first emerged with in the mid-90s. Check it out below...


"I remember going down a Lorde rabbit hole on YouTube last summer, and the song that really stuck with me was 'Team.' 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."Scott Lucas, LOCAL H
