Torres reaches out on her stunning new single “Skim”

Torres has often toed the line between being introspective and throwing her arms around the world. Her music feels deeply personal, but Torres builds skyscrapers of sound around them to the point where her tracks become public record. On her first new single since 2015’s Sprinter, Torres opens her sound even more, allowing space for low-lying synths, the chiming of her guitar. Yet once the frills are removed, “Skim” is essential Torres. “I’m only the skim of what has been,” she sings, reducing herself in the process. As small as she suggests she feels, “Skim” makes her seem like a giant.
