Empress Of – ‘Don’t Tell Me’

Brooklyn’s Lorely Rodriguez introduces herself as a ‘project of sight and sound’ and intrigue in Rodriguez’s work is growing, following the release of anonymously uploaded ‘Colorminutes’ – a series of minute-long snippets of her songs, matched with a corresponding colour.  The ‘Colourminutes’ project proved to be a teasing precursor of what was to come, with Rodriguez now releasing her first single as Empress Of, titled ‘Don’t Tell Me’, an intricate electronic pop offering.  A lulling offering of celestial vocals and tangled melodies, submerged in a murky mixture of reverberated strings and synths, it gets better with every listen – try it out for yourself…
