Share Patrick Holland remix of “Colder & Closer”
New album ‘I Feel Alive’ out now via Musique TOPS
European tour scheduled for late 2020

Montreal four-piece TOPS have shared a new remix of “Colder & Closer,” one of the standout tracks from their new album ‘I Feel Alive’. The track gets a shimmering rework from fellow Montreal DJ/producer Patrick Holland (aka Project Pablo and Jump Source) who infuses the song with bright, kaleidoscopic soundscapes.

‘I Feel Alive’ is out now via TOPS‘ own label Musique TOPS. On the new album, their trademark sound of beguiling melodies over soft-rock grooves, with touches of ’80s sophisti-pop and a contemporary experimental palette is intact, but bolder and more expansive. The songs manage to be both immediately catchy and deceptively deep, with Penny’s literary lyrics adding an extra dimension to the pure pop hooks. Satisfying yet far from predictable, ‘I Feel Alive’ is a record to be savoured, revealing itself slowly, gaining power and poignancy with each listen.

TOPS began to write I Feel Alive’ in Montreal after an extended sabbatical where all members lived in different cities without working on new material or touring. Coming together with a renewed sense of energy, the result is an introspective and resilient album that immediately hits and lingers. The record is their fourth full-length, following 2017’s ‘Sugar At The Gate’ and follows singles “Echo of Dawn” and “Seven Minutes” from last year. The album also includes previous singles “Direct Sunlight,”which singer Jane Penny described as “a song to remind myself that it’s up to me to choose the perspective that I take,””Colder & Closer,” which came with a striking Mashie Alam-directed thermal vision video, the upbeat “Witching Hour,”and the album’s title-track.
