After forming Wampire, Rocky Tinder and Eric Phipps steadily began to make a name for themselves in the same Portland, OR, scene that has produced labelmates STRFKR as well as Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
Now having toured the world and expanded to a five-piece live band, Wampire's disarmingly off-kilter pop is imbued with tinges of paranoia and surrealism (both lyrically and musically) and continually offers listeners a variety of unexpected and alluring sonic flavors.
Based in Montreal, Tops make melodic soft rock. With their intricate guitar figures, gauzy synth pads and deceptively complex arrangements, Tops recall bygone decades of pop (Fleetwood Mac, Heart, Romeo Void, Dire Straits) while still forming a sound that is firmly contemporary. Led by Jane Penny’s lilting vocals and David Carriere’s guitar work and studio wizardry, Tops harnesses a lyrical impulse towards the romantic with inimitable pop songcraft.
