TOPS – “She’s So Bad”
TOPS debut and amazing album Tender Opposites originally released in February, has just been released in the UK/EU, and with it, a bit of an upgrade. There has been a few additions to the original release: new artwork (above), and a couple new bonus tracks, one of which is “She’s So Bad”. Fitting with their distinct pop sound, “She’s So Bad” is about as infectious as they come, and Jane Penny’s addictive and unique vocals are in full force.
We started writing the song right before we left for a tour in the spring, and didn’t get to finishing until we got back. Maybe that’s why it goes through so many different parts. I wanted the vocals at the beginning to be really airy, almost like an effect more than a lead vocal track. It’s a lot more of a pop song than what we’ve been doing since, but I guess we always end up making pop songs. It’s about desire, chasing it, and then getting into trouble.
