Lorely Rodriguez, the much esteemed experimental pop and alt R&B singer songwriter from Los Angeles better known as Empress Of, has some great news for us long time fans of her music. Empress Of has confirmed that a sophomore album is in the works. With the news comes this enchanting gem, Go To Hell, an ethereal burbling, lissome plinking electronic pop beauty. Lorely explains: “This song is very much about a specific thing that happened to me that hurt me and now I laugh with joy every time I hear it. This is the power of music.” Go To Hell, which premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 radio, is available from all digital platforms, here. You can also stream the song off Soundcloud below.

I bet it’s been awhile since you’ve heard Katy Perry’s once ubiquitous hit Hot N Cold. But let’s dive back into that song, sass and all, with a glorious cover by Brooklyn’s Empress Of. She turns the pop song into an ethereal creature that sparkles, twirls, chimes, and darts magically. Lorely Rodriguez’s lofty vocals radiate with an enchanting magnificence on the icy electronic pop interpretation. It’s likely one that Grimes and Georgia might approve of, too. The dreamy electropop artist also unleashed a video today for her jagged and entrancing single How Do You Do It, which you can watch below.

OFFICIAL VID: Empress Of – Champagne

Oh my. This is one gem of a hazy woozy dream pop track from Brooklyn musician Empress Of (Lorely Rodriguez). This is her debut single, and what a debut it is. There’s an almost Annie Clark (St. Vincent) like bizarre quality to the baroque-ish, seductive vocals and psychy sound despite it being much more electric. It’s out on limited 7" right now with B-side Don’t Tell Me. 

Below is the even dreamier B-side Don’t Tell Me, an exercise in syrupy lo-fi buzzy goodness. Some of the falsetto singing makes me think a little of Grimes and maybe even Bjork with how she uses her vocals. Keep an eye on this one! She might become a next indie darling with debut tracks like these. And here’s an interesting thing… after digging around trying to find more on her, I thought I accidentally ended up on some city’s Craigslist page, but upon closer examination, this really is her website! http://empressof.me/ Pretty cool…
