Katy Perry may have broken onto the scene with I Kissed A Girl but that was really a novelty hit. It was Hot N Cold that established her as a proper popstar and we reckon it could do the same kind of thing for Empress Of. Empress Of won’t be as big as Katy Perry, nor does she want to be, but she’s making some damn rad tunes at the moment and establishing her self as an alt-pop darling. Her latest output is a cover of the aforementioned Hot N Cold. She’s taken Perry’s harsh, abrasive tone and replaced it with lush synths and hushed vocals making us fall in love with the track all over again. Empress Of releases her debut album Me on 11th September.
