TORRES, the creative alter-ego of Mackenzie Scott, will release Three Futures via 4AD / Remote Control on Friday 29 September. With less than two weeks to go until the album’s release, TORRES now presents the Ashley Connor-directed video for new single, ‘Helen In The Woods.‘
Three Futures, TORRES’ third full-length album and debut with 4AD, is permeated by vivacious sonic and spiritual decadence. It’s a record about “using the body that each of us has been given as a mechanism of joy.” It embraces ecstasy and indulgence rather than self-denial and exudes this idea via immersive music: mechanized grooves are placed at the forefront, providing a framework for perforated electro-pop static, gothic textures, and insistent Krautrock motifs. Through it all, Scott remains a fluid and expressive vocalist: she employs a more animated, frantic delivery to convey the dark obsessive desires described in ‘Helen in the Woods,’ while elsewhere she exhibits a throaty, hollow timbre or takes a solemn, reverential approach.
Following Sprinter‘s release in 2015, TORRES gained critical acclaim from numerous influential publications, including Pitchfork, which named her single ‘Cowboy Guilt‘ Best New Track, and the New York Times who wrote, “Her music can smoulder while she considers exactly where she stands, and it can roar into feedback-edged howls when her rage or despair boil over.”
