Good Pop Vibes from Luke Top (of Fool’s Gold)

lukeI remember jamming to Fool’s Gold quite a bit, but I don’t think that I felt that invested until I heard this new single from Luke Top on his solo outing. He sounds a lot like Albert Hammond Jr. here, smoothing out vocal notes with pop doses; there’s a nice bounce coming in too from the organ as well. Suspect Highs is Luke’s first solo effort, and the few tracks we’ve heard sound really great, so I can’t wait until March 4th when it’s finally released out into the world.
