Torres shares video for new single “Skim” — watch

on June 06, 2017, 1:30pm

Torres’ 2015 album Sprinter erupted upon its release, with Mackenzie Scott’s assertive vocals and industrial-strength chords making it near-impossible to ignore. Now, she’s back with “Skim”, a sharp, pulsing track that underscores Scott’s nimble riffs with jaunty synths and a steady beat. It also marks her debut release for 4AD.

The single arrives with a striking, unsettling video that lends itself to the song’s themes, which, according to a press release, center around “the relativity of human interactions.” In it, Scott wanders through a sterile, suburban home as groping hands emerge from doorways and, eventually, manifest in half-naked bodies yearning for her touch. It was directed by Ashley Connor, who’s also helmed videos for Angel Olsen, Mitski, and Jenny Lewis. Watch it above.

Torres will also be heading out on a headlining tour of North America and Europe this fall, which she’ll precede with a few festival stops this summer. See her full itinerary below.
