The Indie-Folk four piece band Tors is releasing a much anticipated EP entitled Merry Go Round next month and judging by the title track, which was released this week, there is much to get excited about.

Milky Chance Ego Single Review
A unique singing voice and clever lyrics highlight”Ego,” a catchy new tune from Milky Chance. The song makes the listener think; and anything today that requires thought is refreshing.
