On Monday, Empress Of shared a cover of Katy Perry's "Hot N Cold." Yesterday brought a new video, "How Do You Do It." And today she unleashed another track titled "Standard." This one revolves around a gooey vocal loop that distantly echoes the synth line from Led Zeppelin's "All My Love." A hollow series of drum sounds keeps cascading through the song with a destabilizing effect. I've been eyeing your plate of diamonds, she sings, with an envy that kills the pride.
"Standard" is the third track on Me. Look for the album a week from tomorrow.
