It doesn’t follow any trends or prevailing sounds but instead casts its own unique and understated spell. A long delayed follow up, it has emerged in its own time as a gentle triumph.


It’s Torrini's most insular yet assured collection of songs to date

The 405

Some purveyors of this kind of music have ended up succumbing to blandness, but Torrini's refreshing approach to the singer-songwriter genre means that there's plenty to enjoy on Tookah.


While her latest record is certainly not a jumbled mess, there’s a definite decline in inspiration. I truly admire her for attempting to broaden her palate, even if the final product is a frustrating one.

Although she has earned my respect for remaining loyal to her own vision, no matter the cost, in her latest album, she presents herself more assured than she can handle.
