A glaze of new wave shimmer has always graced the music of TORRES. With her new album Silver Tongue coming in late January, her latest single is no exception. In many ways, “Dressing America” offers plenty of sparkle to that new wave sheen that lays a top the singer songwriter’s sound, while drawing your attention with each well crafted note.
The song in some ways is a deep dive into the reaches of the soul. The way the guitar has that rich hollow body tone while her voice dances above the strums is magical. The vocals are so tender that they stick in your head and force your attention to what they’re saying. The mix on the song creates a build that gets bigger and bigger while opening like a secret being revealed. The video features TORRES dancing about a kitchen and making her way in the Winter weather, giving a great backdrop to the complexities of the track.
The video can be seen above or on YouTube. The song is available to stream on all platforms. Silver Tongue is ready to be preordered directly from Merge Records ahead of its January 31 release. TORRES is on tour beginning January 31 at The Sultan Room in Brooklyn, NY until May 28 at The Bowery Ballroom in New York, NY. Her complete tour dates are located here.
