Show Review

Brooklyn's Lorely Rodriguez is slightly enigmatic, having burst onto the scene in rather unorthodox fashion. After launching 11 'colorminutes' on YouTube in late 2012 with hardly any details surrounding them, Rodriguez's alter ego, Empress Of, began to draw some attention.

Characterized by fleeting electronic vocal lines paired with synthesizer and drums, Empress Of's performance at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel was effortless. The electro-pop group filled the room with cool, airy melodies through their atmospheric playing and hypnotic stage presence. Be sure to look out for more from Rodriguez because we're certain she will continue to operate in such a creatively perplexing manner.

Where did you go? Who are you now? How did you know I wasn't good enough for you? Listening close to yourself talk Tell me who knows you better Than I do?

It's a... Champagne... It's a... Champagne... It's a... Champagne... It's a... Champagne... It's a... Champagne... It's a... Champagne... It's a... Champagne...

Don't show me the stars Show me the distance Show me who you are Show me who you are Lay my cards on the table Tell me my future Tell me I'll make it A hat trick, you've got the right eyes Tell me my future, don't tell me lies Lay my cards on the table Tell me my future Tell me I'll make it A hat trick, you've got the right eyes Tell me my future, don't tell me lies Now that I know you make it stop Never let you go, never let you go Never let you go
If you want, if you want Want some peace of mind Or some self respect Turn your life away to walk you home Tonight You better tell me That you're nobody else's woman and Hold your breath Hold on to tonight Hold your breath Hold on to the little heart That don't belong to him Him...
