CURRENT: Empress Of – “Kitty Kat”

On Me first single “Kitty Kat,” Empress Of toys with interesting juxtapositions. There’s the industrial-strength beat that opens the track, sounding like the aural equivalent of the steam-punk aesthetic, while Empress Of’s vocals shine like a canary in a cage. “Let me walk away,” she asserts time and time again. Despite her assertions, she’s not denouncing where she’s coming from; only celebrating the freedom in choosing where to go.

Me is the debut album from Empress Of, and is due out September 11 via Terrible Records.
