Bay area textural pop band Torrey have released their new single “Bounce” via a music video.
The single comes ahead of the release of their upcoming self-titled album, due to be released on March 8 via Slumberland Records. Pre-order your copy here.
Bending classic shoegaze, rainy day indie rock sounds, and 90s alt rock flair into more intricate forms, the band uses these guitar-forward songs to shape-shift between gentle drifting and noisy breakthroughs. Some touchstones might include Lush, Drop Nineteens, Cocteau Twins and The Breeders, but Torrey have a deft grasp of their craft and a forward-thinking studio approach that places them very much in the NOW.
These new twelve guitar-forward songs drift through classic shoegaze and rainy day indie rock sounds, the entire album blurring into a stream of fragmented bliss. Torrey’s pre-existing foundation of catchy songwriting is emboldened by the limitless approach of the recording sessions. Each song has its own personality, but feels connected to the rest; like a carefully curated playlist.
Of the track, they state: “Even people who seem like they’ve got it all together have doubts and insecurities — “Bounce” is about that conflict. It’s a call and response between joys and fears, highs and lows, wrapped in walls of sound and static.”
