Empress Of + Safia

Music, Dance and electronic
Empress Of

In 2012 New York-based musician Lorely Rodriguez anonymously posted a series of short recording on YouTube, which were noticed by Terrible Records (the label founded by Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear). A few years later, Empress Of has shared the stage with Florence + the Machine and Jamie Liddell and recorded a full-length album. Layered with dreamy synths and undercut by bouncing house beats, Rodriguez's XL Recordings debut, Me, is filled with deeply introspective synth pop. Australian electro-pop act Safia open this Pitchfork Music Festival aftershow.
