Trust Me Baby – Empress Of

Under the name Empress Of, Honduran-American vocalist/songwriter Lorely Rodriguez creates introspective, self-empowering electro-pop centered around her impressive, acrobatic vocals. Born in Los Angeles and raised on Latin music and jazz, Rodriguez became obsessed with Björk as a teenager and decided to become a musician. She moved to the East Coast and began experimenting with music software on her laptop. She first gained attention by anonymously uploading a series of 15 minute-long experimental demos called “colorminutes” (named because they were simply accompanied by a single color each) to YouTube in 2012. Her first 7″ single, the dreamy, downtempo “Champagne”/”Don’t Tell Me,” was released by No Recordings in November of that year. Japanese label Big Love Records released Colorminutes on cassette in early 2013, and Empress Of signed to Terrible Records and Double Denim Records for the release of her 12″ EP Systems. The EP’s Spanish-language single “Tristeza” was remixed by El Guincho, Delorean, and Pional. Rodriguez spent 2014 working on music, releasing the online single “Realize You,” which was significantly more uptempo, danceable, and focused than her previous recordings. Recorded in Mexico City, New York City, and Montreal, Empress Of’s debut album Me arrived on XL/Terrible Records in September of 2015. ~ Paul Simpson
