Empress Of – Tristeza (Pional remix)

The Spanish producer takes on the Brooklyn pop artist's blissful track.


Words by: Aimee Cliff

The breathless pop fragments of Empress Of’s latest single Tristeza made it the soundtrack of our longing for the summer last month. One of her two EP tracks sung in Spanish, the track has the dreamy lilt of sunshine, only emphasised by Lorely Rodriquez’s impassioned and playful delivery, and in the hands of Spanish producer Pional things get even more heated. Pared back, warm and shimmering, the remix doesn’t warp the track into something else, but emphasises all its most blissful qualities – and just in time for the actual sun.

Double Denim/Terrible Records released the ‘System’ EP on the 2nd April.
