Today’s featured tune ‘Icon’ was the closing track on New York based Empress Of’s debut LP Me, which was released earlier this year. Me was a record that helped shape not only the alternative pop scene in 2015, but pop music as a greater whole. Fearless and without restraint; Empress Of delivered a record with heart. Traversing the polar opposites of urban and rural environments, the Eli Born directed film clip works well to match the tidal moods contained within Icon and adds yet another chapter to Lorely Rodriguez’s rapidly unfurling narrative.[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxN5kbsWhWo[/youtube]
