‘Go To Hell’ starts with a rain of crystalline synthesizers and quickly, the claps adopt a catchy pattern in phase with an irresistible childlike melody. Nevertheless, don’t judge a book by its cover. Despite a perfect pop calibration, Empress Of is actually giving a finger to her detractors, and to all the people who think she’s going to fail. This is what we love about the Los Angeles-based artist: her ability to genuinely share her feelings and thoughts without any complaisance or embellishment and to consistently release amazing electro-pop gems. The track could actually work as part of a ‘positive affirmation therapy’ for the people who are too easily unsettled by negative minds and comments.
The artist, who studied a lot of jazz and classical composition as a kid and a teenager, started to be interested in production and build her own sounds at Boston’s Berklee College of Music. Lorely Rodriguez, who writes and composes her music alone, is the living proof that pop music doesn’t always require tons of lyricists, producers and other artifices to be catchy as hell.
