Mechanized grooves are placed at the forefront, providing a framework for perforated electro-pop static, gothic textures, and insistent Krautrock motifs. 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.

TORRES is the creative alter-ego of Brooklyn-based Mackenzie Scott. In describing the album, Scott says it “is entirely about using the body that each of us has been given as a mechanism of joy.” The 10 original tracks on Three Futures embrace ecstasy, desire and indulgence rather than self-denial, and exude this 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.

For Three Futures, Scott reconnected with producer Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey), who worked on TORRES’ last album Sprinter, to record in Stockport and Dorset, England. David Tolomei (Beach House, Future Islands) mixed the album.

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 smolder while she considers exactly where she stands, and it can roar into feedback-edged howls when her rage or despair boil over.”

It was Scott’s single Honey, that made her presence known to world – attracting over 200,000 streams on Soundcloud. She also appeared on Sharon Van Etten’s record “Are We There”, and collaborated with Van Etten & The War On Drugs for this song of her own “New Skin”.

Scott has been deemed ‘one to watch’ for in 2015 by both – TIME Magazine and NME.

“We can’t wait for her new LP, Sprinter” – Rolling Stone

“This record is mammoth… I think it’s an album we’re going to be talking about throughout the year” – NPR

“As displayed on her self-titled debut, Torres’s (a.k.a. Mackenzie Scott) voice can be at times frail and quiet, and other times rich and powerful. “Strange Hellos,” the first single off her second album, which is scheduled to come out in May, features both, but leans much more on the latter, as ish gets real heavy” – Vulture (10 Best New Songs of the Week)

The hooks are catchy, with a unique rough-around-the-edges quality that positions Torres to be indie rock’s next big thing”  – NYLON
