Torrez - The Evening Drag

Front Cover

Full-length CD
Nov 2002

Seemingly out of nowhere (known as Portsmouth, New Hampshire to some) comes Torrez, a band that captures the desolation and majesty of the port towns with their darkened barns and lonesome by-ways. Without the security of an established music scene, they've managed to create something rare: a sensuous, somber record that manages to hover just above despair, drawing the listener deeper into its lovely and haunting world with every listen.

Kimberlee Torres' voice lifts you to a place where dreams and sound converge; her sultry, saturnine tone packs an emotional punch while glimmering with hope. Sidney Alexis uses an array of guitars, from lap steel to baritone to Omnichord, to create soundscapes as aching and lonesome as the closed motels in a seaside town. John and Chris Greiner make up the blood-related rhythm section that drives the music beyond sadness and into redemption.

The Evening Drag is epic in scope, cinematic, and somehow intimate. One willingly surrenders to the pleasures held in its dark caress, even as its ever-present pop sense titillates the ear. This may well be the perfect soundtrack to your fever-dream.
