The promo clip for 'Perfect Places' is full of easter eggs including a sneaky tribute to Lorde's fave band.

Lorde, everyone's favourite New Zealand-based songstress, recently dropped the video for her latest single 'Perfect Places' taken from her excellent second album Melodrama.

Great work everyone.

But, the coolest part of the video has been trying to spot all the easter eggs and references that the singer revealed she included in a recent tweet:


So, what references has she thrown into the mix?

Well, for a start, there are a couple of nice tributes to one of her fave bands, the mighty Paramore.

First, there's this moment where she is singing into a lightbulb which directly references the similar shot in Hayley and co's promo clip for 'Ignorance':





Plus, fans also spotted this recreation of Paramore's 'Monster' video which sees Hayley Williams partly immersed in water:





She really is a superfan!

But Paramore aren't the only act Lorde gives out a shoutout too as she also appears to reference Beyoncé's 'Hold Up' video from Lemonade:


She even manages to reference herself, seemingly winking at the lyrics to Sober II where she sings "Oh how fast the evening passes/Cleaning up the champagne glasses":
