The strongest debut of the week comes courtesy of UK-based singer and songwriter Torrence.
Already a noted artist under the name of Benjamin Torrens, this talent crafts evocative sounds that are unapologetically powerful and brutally honest in tone.
Released via Made Records’ new singles club (Made Arcade), ‘Violent Tendencies‘ was inspired by Torrence’s struggles with ADHD. As the artist elaborates:
“‘Violent Tendencies’ encapsulates the experience of undiagnosed ADHD. The story of a boy who goes to sleep after a Friday night fight, and wakes up to the bird song he knows and loves. The push and pull of growing up feeling repeatedly misunderstood and unable to control his emotions. It is jarring, it is unashamedly raw, and the lack of resolve leads to a powerful experience.”
Few talents have captivated us in such a way as Torrence has with this release; and in our view this is most certainly one artist to keep on your radars.
