Los Angeles based Torii Wolf has a unique graceful style to awaken emotions. The non-binary LGBTQ artist executed a strong and intimate performance at Resident DTLA last night. With drummer, The Keep Running and Torii Wolf’s brother Louy Fierce (who they often collaborate with), Torii performed their latest releases including “Rival,” to a very loving and masked-up audience. Throughout the show, lyrics hit in a way that unavoidably made the listener feel connected.
Torii Wolf’s words evoke love or lack thereof, a lieu of emotions to get you in all the feels. Combined with Louy Fierce’s beats along with The Keep Running’s percussion, the concert was a wave of sensations from heartache to sudden elation. Torii is no stranger to blending the kind of ethereal ambiance that belongs to another realm. Their creative force is a fiery, yet tender one, that flows naturally. Genre breaking you wonder, is it trip-hop? is it a love song? And, did I also hear a club banger? In the end, it did not matter. The way Torii delivered the music was a transcending treat. They left the crowd aroused with emotions, definitely craving more.
