TOPS "Outside"

TOPS 'Outside'
Montreal's TOPS are known for their soft-focus pop tunes, and the newly unveiled "Outside" finds them sounding hazier than ever.

The song is a serene, '80s-flavoured slow jam that's perfect for cheek-to-cheek dancing at prom. The warbling low-end licks that enter soon after the one-minute mark recall Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" as if heard on a warped cassette.

TOPS' album Picture You Staring is due out on September 2 through Arbutus Records.
