Published Feb 12, 2020Montreal's TOPS are delivering their new album I Feel Alive this spring, and we're now getting another teaser from the upcoming full-length. This time, it's a new song called "Witching Hour."
In a statement, TOPS singer Jane Penny explained the following of the newly shared song:
"Witching Hour" is a song about reckoning. David [Carriere] wrote the chorus of the song, and when he showed it to me I gravitated towards the idea of a witching hour as a time of night for unconscious thoughts and uncomfortable visions. The pressure to be feminine has twisted my experience of my own sensuality in this nightmarish way, and I wanted to articulate that by conjuring the nefarious ways that trauma emerges in dreams. There's a sense of reprisal in witchcraft, of retribution as a means of expression, and I wanted to explore that side of feminine power."
Hear "Witching Hour" below. The song follows the previously shared title track "I Feel Alive."
I Feel Alive — the follow-up to 2017's Sugar at the Gate — arrives April 3 via the band's own Musique TOPS label.
TOPS have a long list of tour dates coming up in support of the album, including some here in Canada. See their schedule here.
