REC'D: Torres - "Strange Hellos"

Our first taste from her upcoming LP Sprinter.
Torres Sprinter

Another reason to look forward heartily to the rest of 2015 - Torres has just announced her signing to Partisan Records and shared "Strange Hellos," our first taste from an upcoming LP titled Sprinter. Based on "Strange Hellos," we're looking at a more aggressive side of Mackenzie Scott - she opens with a gentle, minimalist guitar bit, singing about a friend with an ill mother before breaking into driving, noisy distortion and seething vocals. We've always loved Torres best when she dares to get angry, and, well, she's really, really angry, struggling with her hatred for someone and her inability to forgive. It's an exhilarating listen - we can't wait to hear more where this came from, and to catch Torres at SXSW. Check it out while you wait for the rest of Sprinter, out May 5th.
