After their stunning performance at The Dome Tufnell Park this month, TOPS return to London in November for what is set to be another mesmerising show.
For Sugar At The Gate, their third and most ambitious album to date, Montreal’s TOPS peaced out to LA. They lived and recorded at “Glamdale”, a mini-mansion and former brothel located in the Jewel City, Glendale, CA. The unassuming record unfolds slowly, taking time to reveal itself. Like nearly everything TOPS does, multiple meanings overlap with the album’s title referring to orgasm, but also to carrot chasing, gatekeeping, and the social contract. All of TOPS recordings have been produced by the band, who have self recorded the majority of their work to date.
“Manchester-based songsmith Aldous R.H’s most versatile instrument might be his voice. Floating between peaks of helium-infused strangeness, deadpan intonations and a sleepy, broken drawl, it provides the perfect lead to his otherworldly music. Best defined as psychedelic pop, Aldous’ output centres around alluring atmospheres, wryly romantic lyrics and heavy washes of reverb.” – Crack Magazine
TOPS’ own bassist opens the show. Keep your eyes and ears open for his upcoming release in January (via Sinderlyn).
