TOPS, a Montréal-based pop quartet, are coming back to Prague with the new album I Feel Alive, their fourth full-length, following 2017’s Sugar At The Gate and follows singles Echo of Dawn and Seven Minutes from last year. TOPS’s trademark sound of beguiling melodies over soft-rock grooves, with touches of '80s sophisti-pop and a contemporary experimental palette is intact, but bolder and more expansive. The songs manage to be both immediately catchy and deceptively deep, with Penny’s literary lyrics adding an extra dimension to the pure pop hooks. Satisfying yet far from predictable, this is a record to be savored, revealing itself slowly, gaining power and poignancy with each listen.
TOPS = Riley Fleck, Marta Cikojevic, David Carriere and Jane Penny
