Torres - Sprinter

Despite accidentally finding the music of Torres with the brilliant 'Strange Hellos', she's managed to hold my attention with the release of 'Sprinter', the title track from her forthcoming second LP.

Following on from the aggression showcased on 'Strange Hellos', 'Sprinter' changes the pace and takes inspiration from Mackenzie Scott's (Torres' real name) strict Christian upbringing in Georgia, discussing both her struggles to maintain faith and her overall desire to run.

Adrian Utley of Portishead features, and his seasoned experience helps to deliver some polish to the guitar work, without compromising the grit and vigor that Torres brings as a young artist.

Sprinter is due out on 5th May 2015 via Partisan.
