Torres to bring “Three Futures” to Slims on Friday the 13th



Indie singer-songwriter Torres is coming to Slim’s on Friday October 13th. The highly acclaimed 26 year old graduate of Belmont University in Nashville is touring in support of her newly released third album “Three Futures.” Torres burst onto the music scene with her self-titled debut in 2013 and continued turning heads during a series of shows opening for alternative rock icons Garbage in 2015 while drawing comparisons with other respected artists ranging from Kate Bush to Siouxie Sioux.

Torres is the creative alter-ego of Brooklyn-based Mackenzie Scott. Describing the new album, Scott says it “is entirely about using the body that each of us has been given as a mechanism of joy.” Featuring 10 original tracks, “Three Futures” embraces ecstasy, desire and indulgence rather than self-denial, and exudes the idea via immersive music. Mechanized grooves are placed at the forefront, providing a framework for perforated electro-pop static, harsh gothic / industrial textures, and insistent Krautrock motifs.

Following the release of her previous album “Sprinter” in 2015, Torres gained critical praise 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 smolder while she considers exactly where she stands, and it can roar into feedback-edged howls when her rage or despair boil over.” And in reviewing “Skim” off the new album, Rolling Stone recently described it “as a confident statement from an artist growing bolder with her every passing era.”

Tickets for the show at Slim’s are only $15 at the door. If you don’t want to risk them selling out, advance tickets are available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/torres-slims-w-the-dove-the-wolf-tickets-36123383011 .
