Gifted with a talent for emotionally-charged, melodically rich songwriting, the UK’s arena-ready band Tors today build towards a big year in 2024 by sharing their brand new single ‘Tell You’. It comes ahead of next year’s major 27-date arena tour of mainland Europe as main support to James Blunt, and previews a new EP which was recorded in Woodstock with Simone Felice (The Lumineers, Noah Kahan, Vance Joy) and will be released in the spring. Listen HERE.
‘Tell You’ sets out in a style close to the band’s renowned a cappella performances, their seemingly telepathic shared vocals intertwining to touching effect. But each verse and chorus brings new sonic elements into the mix – a flourish of piano, drums which steadily upscale their power – until the song reaches a transformative peak (and a heartbroken low) with its stunning middle-eight. It’s a musician’s way of expressing the emotions that remain unspoken, as shown by the couplet, “How am I supposed to leave this? Write a song and hope you’ll hear it?”
Tors commented, “Have you ever loved someone who never knew how you really felt? How different would life be if you’d had the chance to tell them? These are the questions ‘Tell You’ grasps at, trying to fill the painful space between open-ended memories and closure. Sometimes the hardest decisions to live with are the ones we didn’t make.”
The tour with James Blunt will see Tors closing in on their mission to craft “intimate, personal songs written to be played in stadiums” – please see HERE for a list of those dates. They’re no strangers to big stages, having played other big gigs with artists including Sam Ryder, Freya Ridings and Tom Walker, as well as selling out their recent UK headline tour and have also just announced they will support Cian Ducrot in London at Eventim Apollo on 21st November.
