In advance of a string of West-Coast dates, Nedelle Torrisi is happy to reveal a new single, “Love to the Limit.” Torrisi says of “Love to The Limit,” “if someone is fake or half-way about giving you love, whether in a relationship or friendship, then it’s not worth your time. You deserve better. So I wrote this Reggaeton type song- ‘Love to the limit. Can you give it? If it’s not all the way then I can’t be in it.'”
Torrisi has just signed to Frenchkiss Records and today’s single marks her first for the label. She has confirmed select West Coast dates that start with a show on November 28 at Los Angeles‘ No Name. She kicks off 2018 with a date at The Battery in San Francisco on January 4. All dates are below with more to be added.
Earlier this year Torrisi teamed with Julia Holter, and Nite Jewel to record their take on Depeche Mode’s “Condemnation” which was released via Domino Records. Previous to that she last released music in 2015 by way of the LP Advice From Paradise.
The Los Angeles-based Nedelle Torrisi has been playing music her entire life. And while her early emphasis was on jazz, (she has a degree in jazz music history) her musical career – from her previous solo albums to her work with Cryptacize (her band with Chris Cohen) has always contained more of a 90s-R&B sensibility. Beyond her own work Torrisi has contributed and played with a number of artists and bands whose ranks include Ariel Pink, Dev Hynes and Sufjan Stevens. Nedelle’s accomplishments extend to being the “Dear Abby”of the indie rock world by way of a column called “Advice from Paradise,” where she offers song recommendations to accompany her words of advice to those that wrote asking for help. The New York Times has said Nedelle has ” a guileless voice, an instrument of earnest pleasure and petition” and Stereogum has noted her music has “80s synths that imply carefree pop, but Torrisi’s gorgeous, layered vocals add depth that the ’80s themselves never achieved.” Watch for more news on Nedelle Torrisi in early 2018!
