Empress Of is the solo project of New York based, Honduran-American singer-songwriter, Lorely Rodriguez. She 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. See her on tour in support of her new album, Me. (source: Last FM)
