Lorely Rodriguez cites Ariana Grande, The Black Madonna and Belfast boys Bicep as influences on her sophomore album Us. She writes material with Khalid and MØ, had Dev Hynes/Blood Orange work as a producer on Us, self-directed the video for her single When I’m With Him and got Perfume Genius to cover it. She’s done Song Exploder too and hangs out with Mitski. Her tracks cover touchstones of love, heartbreak, depression, jealousy and friendship. Any more persuasion needed?
