The UK’s rapidly rising indie trio Tors today release their new EP ‘Miracle’ alongside an animated visual for the new focus track ‘Still Life’. Previewed by four songs – the title track, ‘Tell You’‘Happy Enough’ and ‘Only For You’ – the campaign has taken Tors to new heights. Between their strongest set of songs to date and their naturalistic a capella performances, they achieved millions of views and immense growth at socials, as well as fresh support at BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2. Meanwhile, they proved their arena-ready credentials with a huge European tour as special guests to James Blunt. Listen to the ‘Miracle’ EP HERE.

Tors recorded ‘Miracle’ during three visits to Woodstock to collaborate with producer Simone Felice (Noah KahanThe LumineersJade Bird), and the mix of an inspiring collaborator and the scenery and history of the area helped bring out the best in them. They also shared a mutual appreciation with Felice praising their “emotional singalongs that have the power to heal and unite souls.”

All six songs were written by the band, who shared three-part vocal harmonies and multi-instrumentalist duties. That innate talent is in the blood:  brothers Matt and Theo Weedon are the grandchildren of ‘Play In A Day’ guitar legend Burt Weedon OBE, while Jack Bowden’s mother and sister are both music teachers.

Tors explain, “The ‘Miracle’ EP is the truest form of Tors we’ve ever released, a body of work that finally feels and sounds like the band we are in our heads. We recorded it buried in the wild forests and hills of Woodstock, New York with Simone Felice – the creative process was a whirlwind of noise, laughter and cutting the bullshit till we knew what we were looking for and the mission became clear. We  got to see the studio in blistering summer, bone-rattling snow and everything in between. Something about the magical environment and Simone’s undeniable mentorship inspired us to record the strongest songs we’ve released to date. We are so excited for this EP to be out in the world and can’t wait for what’s next.”

The EP’s new focus track ‘Still Life’ shines with the spirit of Woodstock. An upbeat guitar laden anthem, it’s a song that feels built for epic road trips into the great unknown – yet for all its inspiring feeling, it’s very much a song that mourns a relationship as it drifts into its final moment. Watch the visualiser HERE.

Tors add, Still Life is a song about realising you’re in a relationship stuck on autopilot. You’re both going through the motions of what you’ve been told love looks like and you’re comfortable but you’re not truly happy. It’s your last rallying call to arms, knowing that if you don’t work to change things now you might stay this way forever”. 

The six-track ‘Miracle’ EP is completed by a second new song in the shape of ‘Heavy Hearts’. Representative of the growing scale, stature and evocative beauty of Tors’ sound, it captures the heartbreak of being physically so close to someone yet at the same time being separated by a chasm of emotions.

“Heavy Hearts is an apology of sorts written during a really difficult period of our lives where we were forced to own our mistakes and stop running with our eyes closed. It’s a song about begging the person you love to forgive the parts of you you’re the most ashamed of and the most scared to show”.

The ‘Miracle’ EP will be released in a range of physical formats including vinyl, green deluxe vinyl, CD and cassette – all of which are available HERE. The band also offer an innovative merch item: a range of patches which unlock a digital pressing of the EP, each with bonus digital content. Tors will also celebrate the EP’s release with a special performance and signing session at Rough Trade East on May 2nd, with tickets available HERE.

Tors’ growing reputation in the live arena has seen the majority of their upcoming UK tour sell-out in advance, while all of next month’s North American headline shows have done likewise. Demand for tickets has been particularly phenomenal for their European shows in September, with almost all shows either sold-out or upgraded (some multiple times).
