Empress Of aka Lorely Rodriguez aka Brookyn’s latest electro babe, has been making some blog waves recently. Her music is pretty obscure, and kind of in a genre of it’s own. Sometimes it sounds like the Cocteau Twins, sometimes it’s got the epicness of Sigur Ros or Bjork and sometimes it sounds almost tropical and summery. Ultimately, Empress Of creates a sound I want to listen to again and again. In April she released her debut EP, a 4 track 12″ vinyl via Double Denim Records which you can order here.
She is also heading to the UK in a weeks time, playing the following shows. I’ll see you at the front at Great Escape!
17th May- Double Denim Showcase at Great Escape
18th May- Arbutus Party, Total Refreshment Centre, London
20th May- Shacklewell Arms, London (FREE SHOW)
