Montreal's TOPS released a new song/clip this week. "Anything" is lovely and heartbroken, anchored by a charmingly glum vocal from Jane Penny and a sludgy bass line. The video features motorcycles, pervasive darkness, and burning mannequins.
"'Anything' was difficult to write down," Penny told FADER. "It's the anguish you feel when everything you used to have confidence in is no longer there beside you. We went out a couple weeks ago, scoped out strangers' bikes and shot the video that night. Sometimes there isn't a difference between what you have, used to have, and what you don't."
