Today We Be Listening To Kelela, Tinashe And Empress Of

Turn down for what.

There are some good new things to listen to on the internet today and we've put them all in one place just for you. ;) The tunes come courtesy of young guns Kelela, Tinashe and Empress Of whose new tracks are making our morning.

Let's start with the smoov sounds of Kelela, whose Cut 4 Me has been giving us lyf since 2013. Her new track 'Rewind' comes from her next EP Hallucinogen and it features some sick beats and impressive vocals. Produced by Kingdon, Nugget and Kelela, the track incorporates sparse electronic sounds and reverb with dat soulful R&B voice for a catchy/chill vibe.Next up is Lorely Rodriguez, aka Empress Of, a New York-based singer/songwriter who's doing cool things RN. Today she's shared the clip for total banger 'How Do You Do It?' and it's making us want to quit working and go boogie. The angel-voiced gal gets that hook deep in our heads with the help of looping synths and distorted cymbals on the track. Plus, the clip is full of BTS tour montages and flashing lights that are taking us to a fun place.
Lorely also did a cover of Katy Perry's 'Hot N Cold' for Rookie mag which we're not sure if we can listen to because Masterchef.
Finally, Tinashe has shared a teaser of her forthcoming album that's got us excited. If the clip is anything to go by, the album looks like it was written off the back of some soul-searching/ayahuasca-ingesting in the desert. The heavy trap-inspired sounds give us an idea of the good direction Tinashe has gone in on the Drake-featuring record that's due out later this year.
