Tor Miller Headlights EP on 12" Vinyl + Download
Tor Miller is a 19-year old New York City native who spends his days attending New York University and his nights performing at venues such as The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall and The Slipper Room among others. Miller recorded his debut EP with producer Eliot James (Noah and the Whale, Two Door Cinema Club, Plan B, Bloc Party). "Headlights" is the title track of the 4-track offering, which also includes "Hold the Phone," a song from Tor’s dorm-basement days that he recorded on his i-Phone, and which first gained traction when Zane Lowe named it as the Next Hype on his R1 show. "Now and Again," meanwhile, has a swagger Ziggy would have approved of, and a sonic eclecticism that recalls Lindsay Buckingham’s multi-layered production mastery. But it is "Midnight" that most captures Tor’s impassioned musicianship – and his abiding, imperishable love for NYC. Its hymnal cadences are a clear trademark.
