Torche is often referred to as a "Miami band" in the press, but these days, the members are scattered across the country. Brooks decamped to San Francisco about a year ago after roughly five in Atlanta, where Elstner still currently lives. Smith still lives in Miami. But Nuñez is packing up Pinecrust soon and moving it temporarily to Gainesville, a north-central Florida college town that's home to both the University of Florida, and enough nearby, down-tuning bands to keep his studio in business.

But still, it's Miami where the band first gelled - and where it truly found its doom-metal-referencing (but undeniably hook-driven) sound. Some have tried to draw a constant comparison between the city's humid, wet-carpet air and Torche's "swampy" vibe, but that's not really it. Rather, Torche comes from a creative scene with no rules, one of weird juxtapositions and low stakes. ~ Arielle Castillo
