On the title track of their new EP “Dreaming” the Top Boost join forces with Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Beck, Jellyfish, Imperial Drag). They combine catchy melodies and vocal harmonies informed by classic ’60s groups like The Beatles, The Byrds and The Zombies. The result is a swirling blend of bubble gum pop sweetness with a wistful lyrical undertone.
Their debut EP “Turn Around” was named one of the best local CDs of 2016 by the Vancouver Sun and one of the 10 best EPs of 2016 by Power Popaholic. They have also been featured on Adult Swim’s “Fish Center Live” several times.
The band has been playing live to enthusiastic crowds around Vancouver including three sets at the International Pop Overthrow Music Festival and an opening slot for the legendary Pointed Sticks. They recently flew to the UK for a string of shows including two nights at the world famous Cavern Club in Liverpool. A west coast tour is in the works.
The Top Boost evoke memories of a bygone musical era. Their sound may call forth feelings of nostalgia, but they are too young and vital to be a nostalgia act. The Top Boost are making music that is distinctive and new. Now.
