TOPS are not completely new to the blog as I posted about their song ‘Evening’ a while back. Their debut record ‘Tender Opposites’ was released on Monday in the UK and despite mediocre reviews I really like it. The band are from Montreal and make electro-chill pop music which fits nicely with other Montreal bands such as Purity Ring and Grimes. The band are fronted by Jane Penney, whose sweet and tender vocals swoop over sparse guitar lines and beats. My favourite track from the record is still ‘Evening’ by new single ‘She’s So Bad’ and 80’s sounding ‘Turn your Love Around’ are also highlights.
The band play Birthdays in London on November 21st. I think I might be there.
