Lorde's Former Band And They Were Masked's Album 'Characters' Revealed
And They Were Masked, the band which Lorde was formerly in, revealed their album "Characters" via Bandcamp.

As NME notes, the songs date back to 2011-2012, when Lorde was better known as Ella Yelich O'Conner. A list of And They Were Masked's influences on Facebook cites the Mars Volta, Fugazi, PJ Harvey, Bloc Party, Battles, Massive Attack, At the Drive-In and Dirty Three. Lorde's vocals featured on tracks "Sands of John" and "Piece of Mind."

Yes, this band is mostly can be known by Lorde's presence, who has become the young music sensation is 2013 with her smash hit "Royals," but their music is definitely worth to listen, because it doesn't sounds like anything made by average starter band. You may hear a few tunes off it yourself below and even purchase the album here.
