Listen: TOPS’ lovely new song “Outside”


    Picture You Staring is the forthcoming album from the Canadian four-piece TOPS. Last month, we heard its lead single, the alluring and jazzy “Way To Be Loved”. Now, the band return with a similarly blissful number called “Outside”.

    While TOPS may call Arbutus Records home — a label featuring more experimental acts like Grimes and Doldrums — their music sits comfortably in the realm of ’80s synthpop. “Outside” in particular feels inspired by both Beach House’s Bloom and Berlin’s Top Gun theme song, “Take My Breath Away”. Coincidentally enough, it does just that: leaves you utterly breathless.

    Listen in below.
