It's been a couple of years since we've heard from singer-songwriter Torres (née Mackenzie Scott), but the silence has finally been broken as she's released a new single "SKIM" through her new record deal with 4AD (home to artists including Grimes, The National, Future Islands, The Lemon Twigs and Gang Gang Dance).
The companion music video for the single "SKIM," directed by Ashley Cooper, is the kind of unique visual that makes you wish that MTV's "120 Minutes" was still on the air. Finding herself in a suburban home with outdated interior design, the singer wanders throughout as fondling hands and, eventually, half-naked bodies present themselves as her synthesizers and guitar pulse along. It's a unique and unsettling presentation that completely melds well with the song.
No word yet on when we can expect a full album from Torres, but if this first single is any indication, it will be well worth the wait.
