TOPS' new single channels the language and high stakes of 1000 classic love songs. I tried to run away/ I can't shake it, sings Jane Penny. Chained to my memory/ I can't break free/ The end of love. The last phrase comes out in breathy bursts that are multi-tracked for a swoon-worthy effect, and the song's final two minutes are taken up by a smooth, casually adept guitar solo. Listen above, and read the band's GEN F profile.
