Brooklyn’s own Empress Of (aka Lorely Rodriguez, aka my #1 girl crush of the century) just unexpectedly dropped “Realize You,” a plea for amorous introspection that is stocked with Aristotlesque truisms (“freedom ain’t free if I can’t get free with you, just like me ain’t me if I can’t be me with you”) and a mesmerizing electro-pop loop. Syncopated and staccato, “Realize You” stays true to the essence of the colorminutes that first brought the Empress to our attention, yet deviates just enough to agitate complacency and bode a long reign ahead. Stream it below.
