TOPS

Sugar at the Gate

2017-08-10

Tops is a Montreal based pop band with a psychedelic flow. They created their third album, Sugar at the Gates, in LA, Led by female vocalist-songwriter Jane Penny along with guitarist-songwriter David Carriere. Tops' album, Sugar at the Gate, contains hypnotizing music with funky beats, cryptic lyrics, and a sexual energy. The smooth guitar and drum beats combined with Jane's soft yet enthralling vocals draw you in and hold you as a consensual captive. Favorite tracks are 1, 2, 3, and 10.
