The release of Tori Forsyth’s new single, All for You, coincides with the announcement of her much anticipated second album Provlépseis.
Tori says, “I actually wrote the chorus five years ago and forgot about it. Then halfway through lockdown it appeared in my head and I rewrote the verses.” Kicking off with a simple, rhythmic guitar line, this song’s first verse shines a spotlight on Tori’s nuanced vocal delivery, velvety timbre and accusatory lyrics. Instrumentation slowly builds until the chorus explosion of shimmering guitar interplay and insistent drums.
“Provlépseis means predictions in Greek,” Tori explains of her new record’s title. “This album was recorded pre-pandemic and it’s interesting to interpret the lyrics with the benefit of hindsight; where I might not have really known what a few songs meant at the time, I definitely do now ... I’m a pretty spiritual person, but I think that just goes to show how important it is to listen to your intuition.”
Remaining true to herself drives Tori’s creative expression and, while creating this striking 13-track collection, she allowed herself to be guided by the needs of each individual song, freed from genre expectations. Her long, eclectic list of influences, including Stevie Nicks, Nirvana, The Cranberries, The Pretty Reckless and Miley Cyrus, have always influenced her songwriting, but her second album embraces guitar-driven rock elements. Other singles included on the album are Courtney Love, Be Here and Down Below.
