Torres shares title track from upcoming LP

Torres share new title-track from her forthcoming album 'Sprinter,' the LP drops May 4th

Georgia-bred, Brooklyn-based performer and songwriter TORRES (aka Mackenzie Scott) waits until an idea, an emotion, a memory-gnaws at her, tearing at her fingers and throat, until she releases it in song. Her husky voice strains against its human biological constraints like a wild-eyed horse, whispering desperately “Don’t give up on me just yet” on one end and yowling about jealousy with unnerving intensity on the other. Following her self-titled debut in 2013, TORRES pushes herself to even noisier and more personal extremes on sophomore album, Sprinter, recorded in Dorset, England, with co-producer Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey) and at the Bristol studio of Portishead’s Adrian Utley, both of whom perform on the album. With themes of alienation running rampant throughout, it’s a punishing self-examination of grand spiritual and musical proportions suffused with a keen awareness of Scott’s place in her family and in the world.
