TOPS – “Further”

Soft funk group TOPS have always made music that’s a little lost in time, a jangly menagerie of guitars that make your head bop, your fingers tap, and your heart a little warmer, though many of their tracks make use of heavier themes like nostalgia and wistfulness. “Further,” from their upcoming third album, follows the already released tracks “Petals” and “Dayglow Bimbo,” showing another side of their unique aesthetic –  a saccharine sweet breakup track that refuses to let the breakup happen. Jane Penny’s mournful, flinty voice expresses her simultaneous desire and distaste for moving on, as whispers of guitar and bursts of buzzing synth swarm her like a shoulder to cry on.

Sugar at the Gate will be released on June 2nd.
