Empress Of is Brooklyn’s Lorely Rodriguez, who has a voice as sweet and seductive as Lana del Rey (albeit with much more impressive range), but she expertly channels dizzyingly bizarre vocal acrobatics like those of Bjork or Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman, in a Grimes-ian falsetto, over a mesmerizing beat that’s like a confrontational take on classic dream-pop.
