Her first release for 4AD, Torres today reveals brand new track “Skim“, a slow-burning epic that comes accompanied by a stunning new video that lends the track an even more powerful edge. Released, also, alongside a host of European shows, set to take place this Winter, the new track can be viewed below right now.
Buoyed by surges of electronic skirmishes, the track is led in to the fire with that hardened, hypnotic lead vocal that feels as thrilling here as ever before, that burned out, almost other-worldly sense of bruised bluster a prevalent and wonderfully compelling characteristic.
Directed by Ashley Connor, the attached video is a suitably captivating companion piece. Beautifully cinematic, it makes for a stunning five-minutes or so; a tender and tempestuous deviation from the day an a stark reminder of Torres’ inimitable craft. Check it out now.
