Oh, Empress Of. The first time I heard “How Do You Do It,” from Empress Of’s 2015 album ME, I didn’t really know it. It was a song that played in the background of an ordinary day late last year, I didn’t really have time to acknowledge it. Luckily, last week a friend wrote to me to recommend Empress Of for Music Mondays and I was re-introduced to “How Do You Do It,” which I immediately recognized from a previous Discover Weekly playlist, and I was properly introduced to Lorely Rodriguez’s beautiful, dreamy synthpop. Sometimes, the universe simply provides.
So I listened to the entirety of ME, which is definitely something you all should do, but I was most entranced by the B-side track “Woman is a Word.” Have a listen in preparation for International Women’s Day!
Have a great week, y’all!
