New artist Empress Of is getting a lot of buzz right now and you’ll feel that that attention is definitely justified after listening to her track, “Champagne”. This song reminds me a lot of Class Actress, St. Vincent or even classic Cocteau Twins. It actually feels like it would fit right in with a lot of the early New Wave, left of the dial type stuff of the 80’s. The video of Empress Of eating a watermelon somehow manages to be both adorable and strangely unsettling all at the same time. I can’t wait to hear more from her.
