Empress Of and Australian producer KITO have share their new single, “Wild Girl” via Astralwerks. This news comes shortly after the announcement that KITO has officially signed to Astralwerks. KITO is a producer and songwriter who developed her distinct sound while growing up in Australia and later living in London. KITO made the move to Los Angeles to focus on her artist project while still being a top and in-demand producer.
Empress Of AKA: Honduran-American vocalist/songwriter Lorely Rodriguez’s debut album, Me, established herself with a danceable, spontaneous sound that embraced whimsicality and percussiveness. With her 2018 sophomore album, Us, Rodriguez wanted to facilitate a more equal exchange of energy between herself and her listeners, to create a “community.” “It’s not just love songs. It’s about different experiences of the heart,” she says. “I want it to be like a mirror, and [the audience] sees a little bit of themselves in every song.” Empress Of has been touring her sophomore album “Us” around the world for the last year opening for Lizzo and is currently on tour with Maggie Rogers.
