While you were ashing in your coffee

torres-music1Mackenzie Scott records under the name TORRES.  The debut from the 22-year-old Nashville native is a sparse collection of  personal songs that oscillate between delicacy and intense ferocity.  On “Honey,” the lyrics and instrumental tension contribute to a song that captures the unbearable inadequacy of our romantic lives.  It is not an angry rant.  It is a person sitting across from a lover, face red from holding in things left unsaid, wondering whether or not this is all there is.

A video of Scott playing “Jealousy and I” is below.
