Share new single “Party Again”
Announce US tour dates + Primavera Sound 2022
TOPS have dropped a new single “Party Again”, along with details of rescheduled US tour dates and a performance at Primavera Sound 2022.
“Last spring when all our tours got cancelled most of us ended up in Montreal and we spent the summer writing and recording some new songs. The song we’re sharing today – “Party Again” – seemed too appropriate to not use it to announce our rescheduled dates. The song is about missing someone that you only see when you go out”, comment TOPS on their latest single.
Party Again is the upbeat reflective anthem of our time. Capturing this feel-good feeling and reinforced with this nostalgic affection that we can all relate with, ethereal vocal melodies ooze this sublime character throughout whereas the dazzling rhythms enhance those lyrical attributes. Easily one of the most memorable releases of 2021, TOPS are on top form.
TOPS were formed in Montreal when song-writing duo David Carriere and Jane Penny decided to join forces with drummer Riley Fleck. Since then they have become a hugely influential underground act, creating a space for sophisticated pop music in the indie world.
Their tendency to opt towards making straight-forward, stripped down and honest recordings lets their pop song-writing shine out in the open. With a heart firmly attached to their sleeves, their songcraft delves into the emotional intricacy of personal relationships, asking questions about power and desire. Riley Fleck’s measured drumming and David Carriere’s trademark guitar licks mesh with Marta Cikojevic’s lush keyboards. All these elements work in tandem and in service of Jane Penny’s unmistakable, wistful voice.
The result of this mixture is a collection of four self-produced records and a handful of singles that cover a range of moods and a complex emotional realm while maintaining a groove and musicality. Soft rock infused pop hits flow easily, surrounded by their signature moody ballads.
