Silver Torches is Erik Walters, a touring member of Perfume Genius and David Bazan’s band, and his first single from his forthcoming album If I Reach dropped on Stereogum earlier this week, a synth laden, heavily Springsteen influenced number. The new album dips in and out of americana, with the legendary Greg Leisz lending some pedal steel to a couple tracks and guest appearances from Courtney Marie Andrews and Noah Gundersen. AUK and synths.
