We were introduced to the Edinburgh-based
artist and her merry crew at the launch night of The Ice Box in Glasgow
over a month ago, and she truly caught us off guard.
The empress released her debut album
Beyond Never earlier this week, and the opening title track certainly
makes a good impression for new listeners, with this appealing sound
that is akin to operatic doom rock.
While there’s a couple of awkward slips,
the song nonetheless hooks us in with sonant vocals, great work on the
guitars and a solid rhythm.
