SOTD: Torres – New Skin

In my opinion Torres is one of the rawest songwriters around right now. Following 2013’s stunning self-titled LP, she has produced New Skin, a collaboration which features a dream team featuring Sharon Van Etten, The War on Drugs, and Chris Wilson of Ted Leo and the Pharmacists. Baring all, Torres bemoans her way through sincere and pointed lyricism which is supported by waves of steadily amplifying, immersive indie rock. It’s a substantially bigger sound for the usually solitary artist, and something I’d be keen to hear more of on her upcoming bodies of work (even though I am a big fan of the simplicity and passion of her previous LP.)

The track was debuted as part of the non-profit Weathervane Music‘s Shaking Through web series.
