Lorde, who’s real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor, lets her voice and lyrics really shine, thanks to the super simple one-take video that is just the teen in black clothing, braided hair, and dark lipstick staring into the screen and giving the occasional “yeah.”

“Tennis Court” is off Lorde’s The Tennis Court EP, which was released in her native country on June 7 and is headed to the U.K. next on July 22.
