"Silver Tongue is fixated on desire, and Scott paints the sensation as something desperate and strange." – NPR Music
"She's never sounded more at ease — really, she's never sounded more like herself.” – MTV
"'Dressing America' puts her penchant for zappy snares to use, as the percussion tones vacillate between standard acoustic and electrified pad sounds. Her lyricism is just as poignant as ever, punctuating the instrumentation with a glittery lust.” – Stereogum
“her most intimate and eclectic” – Pitchfork
TORRES, the project of New York-based musician Mackenzie Scott, presents “Dressing America” from for Silver Tongue, out now on Merge Records. Her North American tour, which runs from late March through May.
Following previously released singles “Gracious Day” and “Good Scare,” “Dressing America” combines New Wave glitter with hovering frustration. Scott’s striking vocal hooks punctuate sparkling instrumentation as she sings “You think that I don’t know you don’t want to be alone? / Come on / You’re always telling me I don’t know who you are / Come on, woman / I tend to sleep with my boots on should I need to gallop over dark water / To you on short notice.” The accompanying video was directed by Ashley Connor and features Scott.
“An ode to every sacrificial act of love,” says Connor. “Starring our hero Cowboy Mackenzie, who will gladly carry any lover through the snow. A few friends made the video during the December squall.”
Silver Tongue is named after those whose words are so potent they cause the people and beings around them to vibrate. It’s a full-scale realization of the world Scott has created over TORRES’ last few albums, and the first TORRES record produced solely by Scott. Silver Tongue chronicles the impulses that make up desire—from the dreamy first blushes of infatuation through the slightly terrifying wonder that accompanies connection with another.
TORRES’ music has long navigated the space between the physical and the metaphysical, and Silver Tongue faces that conflict head-on, examining the ways in which the actions of others can stir up deep-seated feelings and seemingly alter the space in which one exists.
