Torres is the alias of Mackenzie Scott who will release her second album Sprinter on 5th May (18th in Europe). The album has been produced by Rob Ellis who has worked with PJ Harvey and Anna Calvi, among others. The first single is called "Strange Hellos". It's noticeably louder than pretty much anything from her debut. "New Skin" is another already released song that will appear on the album, although in a new version. The recording I linked to features Sharon van Etten and members of The War on Drugs as the backing band. Torres' self-titled debut from 2013 is worth a listen for everyone who enjoys downbeat singer-songwriter material (not unlike Sharon van Etten or PJ Harvey). It's mostly electric guitar-based, though my personal favourite "Chains" is a stark dirge backed by a synthesized beat and bass, and occasional synths. "Honey" was the single and it's a pretty good indicator of what to expect from the album (not any brighter moments, that's for sure). "Mother Earth, Father God" is another highlight.
