We are psyched to premiere the sparkling, starry-eyed first track to be unveiled from Empress Of's lovely new Systems EP, which will be released in April via the great Terrible Records here in the States + Double Denim in the rest of the world. As avowed fans/lovers of Lorely Rodriguez's wonderful colorminutes series, both songs from her beautiful debut Empress Of 7", and her kind of brilliant website, we feel good proclaiming the irresistibly bright + playfully swooning pop gem "Hat Trick" the best thing she's done to date:

Systems is out April 2. Catch Empress Of (with Brazos) at this show that we're co-presenting with Brooklyn Vegan at Pianos in NYC on Tuesday, and at our own SXSW affair on March 13, before she heads out on her US tour later this month with Jamie Lidell. Check out all of her upcoming dates over at BV.
