Cat Velez - 14th Sept 2015

For the most of Zaiba Jabbar's video for Standard, Lorely Rodriguez aka Empress Of performs the song while hanging suspended upside down, held by a helpful and gentle bodybuilder.

It's a relationship which also has the singer affectionately painting the man's nails and him softly brushing her hair in return. An intriguing scenario for the New York-based singer's alluring dreampop.
