  • Lorde's 'Solar Power' Is Now The Soundtrack For A Horror Movie Thanks To This Clever Mashup

    Lorde's Solar Power definitely had some cultish vibes to it when we first heard it/watched the music video, and that's now been confirmed thanks to a mashup that sees the track soundtracking scenes from the 2019 horror film Midsommar.

    First posted by NME, the video features Solar Power playing during key scenes of Midsommar, which involves a Scandinavian pagan cult - and the visuals used mirror Solar Power's music video pretty darn well.

    The video, which was made by leandroxcx, has been well-received by most fans, except one that wrote, "awwww this movie looks so adorable its so cute i think im gonna watch with the whole family thanks for telling me about it 😍".

    They later returned with an update, saying, "DONT WATCH MY PARENTS ARE ANGRY AT ME! its so disturbing and my siblings are traumatised 😭😭😭". Sometimes a little bit of research beforehand doesn't hurt...

    Of course, if you're going to watch Midsommar, be warned that it is actually pretty terrifying. The video makes it look a lot more cheerful than it actually is - so be warned.

    Lorde's album, Solar Power, is set to drop on Friday, August 19th, and we're wondering if there will be any more horror movie-worthy tracks on there. Until then, check out the mashup below, and be prepared to be a little bit freaked out...
