Love ourselves a little splashette of wistful transatlantic pop we do, and today that comes beamed in radiantly from Brooklyn’s Lorely Rodriguez, aka Empress Of. Hat Trick tells of a trip to the neighbourhood clairvoyant, as Rodriguez insouciantly intones in what more or less sounds like a sigh straight out of the ’80s: “Lay my cards on the table/ Tell me my future” over pseudo-futuro splurges of slooshing, slo-mo Miami Vice smooth. Firmly in its sights its a muzzy, almost exhausted climax evocative of a certain Super Trouper, as Rodriguez then repeatedly assures she’ll “never let you go.” And it makes us want to break down the fourth wall and thank her profusely, it does.
