    TOPS

    Alternative Rock

    TOPS were formed in Montreal in 2011 when song-writing duo David Carriere and Jane Penny decided to join forces with drummer Riley Fleck. Since then they have become one of the most influential underground bands of the past decade, creating a space for sophisticated pop musicin the indie world.Within the vibrant community surrounding Arbutus Recordsat the time of their formation, TOPS forged a unique sound. The only traditional ‘band’ on the label’s roster, they’ve built a significant following of fans, a dedicated audience at their live shows and a musical connection thatcontinues to deepen as the years go by. With their newly minted label-Musique TOPS-theband is poised to release their best work to date.Their tendency to opt towards making straight-forward, stripped down and honest recordings lets their pop songwriting 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 three 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.TOPS are celebrating the launch of their own record label, Musique TOPS, by sharing twounreleased songs, taken from the recording sessions of the band’s most recent LP, Sugar at theGate. The haunted 70’s folk elegance of “Echo of Dawn” is paired with the energetic “VIIMinutes”, a classic example of the band’s uptempo, breezy sound.
