KEXP Presents: Torres

On Sprinter, the latest album by Torres, Mackenzie Scott doesn't shy away from big issues. The 24-year-old singer-songwriter, raised in the South but based in Brooklyn, uses her music to explore heavy themes of identity, mortality, religion and alienation.

Sprinter finds Scott embarking on a complex and rewarding musical journey with the aid of producer Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey, Anna Calvi, Marianne Faithfull). Here, she and her band give a winning performance, highlighted by the title track from Sprinter.
