Australia’s Empress blur the lines of many musical genres, from indie to shoegaze, from post-rock to metal and perhaps the best way to describe their music is with adjectives like immersive, soothing, haunting, and delicately massive.
The Gold Coast group first introduced themselves to the Brisbane dark and alternative music scene in 2017 with a six-track self-titled LP. The product of a complete year of writing and recording, the LP was an emotional collection of songs that possessed an extraordinary ability to pull the senses of listeners and drag them to their immersive and dark world.
The album allowed them to play locally and throughout the East Coast, opening up for such diverse artists as Youth Code, Church of Misery, The Body and Cult Leader among others.
Now in 2020, Empress are ready to release their second album titled “Wait ‘Til Night”, an eight-track album that once again defies easy categorisation. More refined and mature than before, Empress is a clash of emotional and musical contradictions, soft and harsh, calm and hysterical.
