Approved: Torres

Torres

Next week, Torres returns with her third album, ‘Three Futures’. Her first record for 4AD, while previous releases haven’t fully grabbed me, the three tracks so far released from this new record have me completely hooked.

Describing the album as being about “using the body that each of us has been given as a mechanism of joy”, Torres also takes a more experimental approach on the new LP, particularly in her vocals and guitar work.

First single ‘Skim’ takes on the gait of a zombie in its rhythm, marching ominously to each chorus. Title track ‘Three Futures’, meanwhile, slows the pace to make way for an unwinding story, complemented by its ‘Twin Peaks’-esque video.

New single ‘Helen In The Woods’ takes a darker turn into a world of obsession and stalking, its grinding rhythms providing an unsettling backing to what sounds like the treatment for a horror movie.

Torres will play three shows in the UK in November. Manchester’s Soup Kitchen on 7 Nov, the Tufnell Part Dome on 8 Nov and The Haunt in Brighton on 9 Nov.

Now, watch the video for ‘Helen In The Woods’ here:
