TOPS – “Hollow Sound Of The Morning Chimes”

Last year, Montreal dreampoppers TOPS released an LP called Picture You Staring, and it was one of our favorite albums of 2014. This morning, on the heels of recent single “Anything,” they’ve dropped another standalone track called “Hollow Sound Of The Morning Chimes.” It’s a precise, elegant song, even though it sprawls over seven minutes, and it sounds something like Slowdive trying their hand at hotel-lounge jazz. It’s rare to hear a song that’s this smooth and this woozy at the same time, and it has me wondering what this band might be up to. Check it out below.

“Hollow Sound Of The Morning Chimes” is out now at iTunes, via Arbutus.
