Unknown Mortal Orchestra

The groovesome quartet led by New Zealander Ruban Nielson, Unknown Mortal Orchestra makes colorful ’60s-style psychedelic rock with shades of the Kinks and the Zombies, as well as latter-day torchbearers such as Dungen. As Empress Of, singer-songwriter Lorely Rodriguez sounds nothing short of singular, channeling floating electronic beats, meticulously layered samples and dream-pop melodies. From the swinging groove of “How Do You Do It” to the anxiously tremulous synth lines on “Water Water,” Rodriguez employs body-moving bass and house-inspired beats to tell deeply personal tales on her 2015 debut, Me. In the studio, it's all her, but on stage she fleshes out the sound with two bandmates.
