The Golden Age Of Piracy: Torres On Her Formative Five

Torres is the recording name of Mackenzie Scott, an American musician who makes slow-burning, anthemic indie rock. Having released her fifth album Thirstier earlier in 2021, she joins Tristen Harris on The Golden Age Of Piracy for a Formative Five, which includes a profession of love for Belinda Carlisle’s "Heaven Is A Place On Earth". 

“I think I can speak for everyone when I say that it makes everyone feel awesome,” she says. “It’s so sexy and fun at the same time. It’s a sweet spot that I’m always trying to hit. You only kind of see how great pop music is after its heyday.”
