Montréal-based band TOPS have announced their North American tour by sharing a new song, “Party Again.” The track infuses pop with soft rock. Guitarist David Carriere and drummer Riley Fleck’s sparkling instrumentals add electricity to Jane Penny‘s soft, dreamy vocals. Penny sings about how she “just can’t live without friends,” as Marta Cikojevic mixes in fluttering synths.

The band announced the song release and tour on Twitter, saying, “Today we’re releasing our new song ‘Party Again’ in celebration of the return of TOPS LIVE SHOWS in the USA and Canada this fall. cannot wait to FINALLY play shows again!!

TOPS shared how the meaning behind “Party Again” perfectly aligns with the feeling of finally being able to tour in a press release. 

“Last spring, when all our tours got canceled, most of us ended up in Montreal, and we spent the summer writing and recording some new songs,” they say. “The song we’re sharing today—“Party Again”—seemed too appropriate to not use it to announce our rescheduled dates. The song is about missing someone that you only see when you go out.”

“Party Again” comes after the band’s fourth full-length, I Feel Alive. That project was about “being out in the world as a free agent,” Penny says in an interview, “but it’s also about human relationships; about falling in love in a deep way.” 

I Feel Alive was self-released on the group’s label, Musique TOPS

“We’ve always recognized that the best investment of our resources is to get equipment as opposed to paying a producer; to learn an instrument over hiring someone,” Penny says. “Putting money into someone else’s hands is scary. We’ve never enlisted someone to help us do what we’re doing. The result is that we cultivate deeper every time what we want to sound like.”
