Today, Montreal-based group TOPS share new song “Waiting,” a track with upbeat drums and David Carriere’s twinkling guitar riffs laced together with singer Jane Penny’s breathy vocals and catchy melodies.
Of the new song, Penny comments: “I’m a very nostalgic person and the last year only made me more so. Nostalgia cuts both ways, memories of my past fed me during that time, but became so vivid that they began to seep the colour from the present. I wrote this song as a tribute to the early days of TOPS and the romanticized version that I have of those times, but it became an exploration of the effect of time in general. When I think back on my life, where am I?”
“Waiting“ marks the second offering from TOPS this year, following “Party Again,” which was released in conjunction with the announcement of their North American tour, which began last week. They are also confirmed to play next year’s Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona.
