Torres – New Skin

Mackenzie Scott, aka Torres, was definitely one of our favourite new acts in 2013, as we all fell head over heels for her harrowing vocals and her stark acoustic melodies. The Nashville singer-songwriter has now provided us a new song called New Skin for Philadelphia non-profit Weathervane Music’s web series Shaking Through, with a backing band composed by Sharon Van Etten, the War On Drugs members Adam Granduciel and Dave Hartley and Chris Wilson of Ted Leo And The Pharmacists.

With such an All Star team it goes without saying that the outcome is a gorgeous track full of powerful guitars and clashing drums that are reminiscent of something between Daughter and Bon Iver with an overall result which is maybe closer to War On Drugs’ sounds than to what we’ve heard on Torres’ debut LP.

Listen below and also have a look to the live session for Shaking Through web series.
