Empress Of is Brooklyn’s Lorely Rodriguez, who’s releasing her debut single after premiering her live show this October at CMJ. You’ve probably already heard gorgeous b-side “Don’t Tell Me,” now check out the Samuel Morris Hamad-directed visuals for a-side “Champagne.” We’re loving this song – Rodriguez has a voice as sweet and seductive as Lana del Rey (albeit with much more impressive range), but she expertly channels dizzyingly bizarre vocal acrobatics like those of Bjork or Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman, in a Grimes-ian falsetto, over a mesmerizing beat that’s like a confrontational take on classic dream-pop. Hamad’s accompanying visuals are suitably bizarre, fragmented, and summery. Check it out.
