Tors Took Time Out To Re-evaluate Their Sound & Style & Return With New Single & Date @ Chalk Brighton

Having taken a little time out of the scene to re-evaluate their sound and style, Brighton-bound indie-pop trio Tors' new single Garden On The Kitchen Floor shows that their decision was well founded. 

Romantic and nostalgic, the song reflects on the early days of a relationship in which love triumphed over challenging circumstances. 

It shows that Tors excel at big melodies, big harmonies, tender emotions and unforgettable hooks - and proves that they have an anthemic, radio-friendly sound that can win a huge following across the world.
Tors commented: 

"'Garden on the Kitchen Floor' is a really special return to releasing music for us - a bittersweet realisation that the moments you struggled most in were the happiest you had and a reminder to give yourself fully to life as it's happening, not in retrospect.

"Coming out of a year of lockdowns and sudden, forced introspection definitely taught us to appreciate the moments we"re given in all their glory and ugliness.
"While the world stopped for a minute we were locked away writing and re-envisioning what Tors could and should be moving forward. Tors are back and life couldn"t be better."

The accompanying live performance of the video is filmed at the Thorverton Arms, a pub just north of Exeter where the band bring collaborators such as Declan J Donovan and Marius Bear for impromptu performances and pints. 

With a stripped-back arrangement backed by just piano and guitar, Tors showcase the tightly-honed, heavy vocal harmonies that gives their sound such a warm, uplifting feeling.

As guests of X Ambassadors, Tors play Chalk Brighton on 28th September 2022. CLICK HERE for tickets.
