TORRES - New to 4AD, 'Skim' Video Plus Tour Dates
TORRES : New to 4AD, 'Skim' Video Plus Tour Dates
6th June 2017

4AD welcomes TORRES, the outstanding creative alter-ego of Brooklyn-via-Nashville musician Mackenzie Scott.

TORRES’ last record Sprinter (2015) was lauded across the board from The Observer who called it “astonishing” to Pitchfork scoring it 8/10 as well as making ‘Cowboy Guilt’ a Best New Track, and the New York Times claiming “her music can smoulder while she considers exactly where she stands, and it can roar into feedback-edged howls when her rage or despair boil over.” 

Today sees the release of new single 'Skim'.  You can hear the track on Apple Music and Spotify here.  'Skim' comes accompanied by a striking clip, directed by Ashley Connor, where TORRES reflects on the relativity of human interactions, which is at odds with the robotic synth pop of the track.  You can watch the video here, and in the player below.

TORRES will bring her blistering live show on the road this Autumn throughout North America and Europe.  The performances will build on what NPR’s Bob Boilen praised as “fierce” and “thrilling for its wrath and brutal honesty” when he named TORRES one of his top five favourite shows of 2015.
