TOPS, the four-piece band from Montreal, equal parts girls and guys are coming to Europe to promote their new LP ‘Picture You Staring’. The band have also released a video for new single ‘Outside’ (see above).
‘Picture You Staring’ was self-written, recorded, produced, and the result of 12 months holed up in Arbutus Records’ Montreal office-space turned studio. In essence it’s an album of 12 impeccable pop tracks with that little twist of indie for good measure (check out the quite haunting guitar on ‘Outside’). TOPS engineer and produce their own records and make their own videos in collaboration with fellow artists and filmmakers. In opposition to commercially driven pop music, TOPS pursuit lies in creating moving songs that succeed earnestly, disregarding trends and myth-making.
