CA - Arbutus Records
TOPS is a Montreal based four-piece, having each played in multiple groups in prior (Pat Jordache, Paula, Hammond-Ri, Silly Kissers, Sugar Boys etc.), they are band entrenched in the local community that makes music found no where else in or outside Montreal.
Tender Opposites is the band’s first full length release. It was recorded and reworked several times by the band at La Brique, the loft venue which serves as the creative hub for Arbutus Records, and an extension of the famed Lab Synthèse where they met. The resulting songs have a complexity that slips easily into the shadows of the moods that they create – alternating between melancholic visions of the future and ecstatic fantasies that overcome them.
