Empress Of – “Realize You”
Empress Of cracked our list of 2013’s 40 best new bands, so listen up, y’all. Lorely Rodriguez has a nervy new electro-pop jam for us. It’s called “Realize You,” and it’s a pretty intense document of romantic infatuation. Sample lyric: “I want to be your boyfriend/ And I want to be your girlfriend/ And I want to take you to there/ And I want to watch you do it.” Although, judging from the Twitter bio “music is my boyfriend,” maybe this is about giving yourself over to glorious sounds. “Realize You” might just merit that kind of devotion. Get lost in the groove below.
No word yet on whether this song is part of a larger release or just an awesome internet one-off, but it’s quite a treat either way. (Not a trick, see, ’cause it’s Halloween.)
