TOPS – Way To Be Loved

Here’s the opening track of TOPS‘ upcoming album Picture You Staring (out on September 8th via Arbutus Records), a gem that reiterates that the Montréal four piece has more remarkable songcrafting skills than any other “lo-fi” guitar band around. Everything sounds in the right place on Way To Be Loved, from the compelling guitar riffs to the swaying gate of the singing, from the always firm bassline to the retro gaze of the refrain. It’s a perfect song, really.

Listen below, then pre-order the record here. We highly recommend you to get it on vinyl as it comes with a poster continuing the scene that’s been pictured on the album cover (above) by the amazing Jessica Dean Harrison.
