Empress Of, “Woman is a Word”

on .

Empress Of has a very busy week in Austin with several SXSW performances (full tour list here), but we’re thrilled to hear a brand new sparse synth track from the L.A.-based artist. “Woman is a Word” pushes toward an independence of self, a declaration that the words that so often define only have the power to do so if we see them as more than words. It’s minimal yet catchy, enjoyable yet important. Take a listen below.
