Last month, we had the pleasure of filming 23-year-old songwriter/producer Lorely Rodriguez, aka Empress Of, down in Austin at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel, and we were instantly absorbed by her quirky play on electro pop. Today, the young musical mind from Brooklyn released her debut EP, which features the song shared below, "Tristeza".
"Tristeza" is one of two songs on the EP featuring Lorely in her first language, Spanish. And though my Spanish is a little rusty, it's hard to avoid being captured by this track's glittery eccentricity.
