TORRS is a young Alternative/Indie rock band from Stewartry and Dumfries who are hitting the South West Scotland with a bang!
Torrs released a video (which they have made themselves!) on Friday 29th January of a Red Hot Chili Peppers song called Goodbye Angels. By Sunday 31st January it has received over 6000 views on Facebook and has also had a good following on the bands Instagram and YouTube Pages.
The boys’ first gig was back in 2017 when they played at an Open Mic night at the Catstrand in New Galloway. They played covers of bands like Gun n Roses and Nirvana and were known as PureSilver.
They have gone on to play at various gigs and festivals across Dumfries and Galloway. They have supported bands like the Lutras and up and coming rock band Tomorrow is Lost.
Torrs won a battle of the bands and gained a slot at the 2020 Eden Festival and were due to take part in Stranraer RNLI Parkfest 2020 but unfortunately due the the Covid Pandemic that event was cancelled.
Coronavirus has put a stop to the gigs but the boys have been writing and practising as much as they can during lockdown. Torrs mix up acoustic with electric in their songs.
Torrs released their debut single and lyric video (also made by themselves!) for Kaleidoscope skies coming on Valentine’s Day. Here is the link for it:-
When restrictions are lifted they will record an ep. This was planned months ago and they are itching to go!
