Empress Of – “Kitty Kat”

Judging by the maturity of her craft, you wouldn’t think the solo project of Lorely Rodriguez had yet to release a full-length album as Empress Of. On tracks like “Water Water” and “Realize You,” Rodriguez sounds perfectly polished and layered in her electro-infused power ballads, music that marks her as a peer of FKA twigs. Finally, we’ve caught word that the debut Empress Of album, Me, will surface in September. Rodriguez recorded, produced, and engineered the whole thing herself, noting that the record is “about my experiences.” The single “Kitty Kat” is a new step for Empress Of. Where she was previously soft and introspective, “Kitty Kat” is powerful in a more explicit way. Listen below.
