Empress Of debuted this track during an after party at Pitchfork Fest earlier this year. Now that we have a proper release, the Spanish-speaking songstress (Lorely Rodriguez) with an affinity for “weird” sounds has graced us once again with her ethereal lyrics and angelic voice. She’s become an expert at modernizing nostalgic feelings of love and hope into alternative electronic pop sounds that keep our feet tapping along. Her vocals are always lush, the beats are always trippy, and fun is always guaranteed.
The song has an uplifting beat that starts like a 4-to-the-floor but then pivots into a syncopated back-beat to which Lorely adds a delicate touch of her vocal prowess. She even posted her mercerizing lyrics on her SoundCloud page — and with lyrics like “Have you been you with you lately? Cos’ you haven’t been you with me,” how can you resist?
