How Do You Do It (live)


Empress Of

About the artist


Empress Of is the moniker of singer-songwriter-producer Lorely Rodriquez from Los Angeles, CA. Last year Empress Of released her critically acclaimed, debut LP ‘Me’ on Terrible Recordings/XL Recordings. The roots of ‘Me’ start in an empty practice space in Brooklyn, where Lorely spent many nights dancing alone next to a little spinning silver disco ball. “After touring her EP ‘Systems’, I realized I wanted to make music that was fun to perform live,” she says. But ultimately New York City put her in a less-than-inspired headspace. Her intuitive search for a more introspective and isolated writing experience led her to unexpectedly life-changing and mind-bending solo trip to Valle de Bravo, Mexico. The isolation sent her deep inside her head, to pull out everything she wanted to pour into ‘Me.’ “Every lyric on the record, I could tell you exactly what I was doing when I wrote it,” Lorely explains, “I wanted to write songs that gave me this feeling of reliving moments in my life.”
On tracks, “Kitty Kat” and “Water Water,” Lorely sings candidly on street harassment and water scarcity, but mostly Lorely’s lyrics are more introspective; songs of broken relationships, new ones starting, and ultimately, self-reliance. “I just need myself, need myself, to love myself, to love myself,” which she sings on another album track “Need Myself”. If clarity is what she seeks, Lorely has found it in ‘Me:’ her voice upfront, every word audible and strong. Her singular voice is the centerpiece of ‘Me’, her first full-formed vision of an album, following her previously shorter and more abstract releases as Empress Of (2012’s ‘Colorminutes,’ 2013’s ‘Systems’ EP).
