Empress Of has posted new track 'Realize You' online - listen to it below.
Real name Lorely Rodriguez, Brooklynite producer Empress Of has been slowly enrapturing our imagination over the past year. A succession of one off releases have stamped her template, with dreamy vocals matched to heartbroken lyrics and immaculate production.
A few moments ago, though, Empress Of just raised the bar a little higher. The songwriter has been posting new material to her SoundCloud, including a collaboration with Amateur Best.
Yet it's a solo cut which has really gotten us hot under the collar. 'Realize You' distills all of her youthful promise down into three minutes, displaying remarkable imagination in the process.
Effortlessly beautiful, you simply cannot argue with the poignancy of these lyrics: "grow a little more / and you let go a little more / and if the circumstances change / you can learn to play the game".
Listen to it now.
Empress Of is set to play Iceland Airwaves tomorrow (November 1st) but you can catch Lorely Rodriguez at London venue Birthdays on November 5th.
