Remember 'Outside' by TOPS? Well, that doo-wop, otherworldly yet wholly earthy and known-inside-out sound has been given a visual reworking. Not just any old visual reworking, though (you know I mean a video, right?) – it's interactive. Not quite like that one with JUCE, actually quite different; you can drag a bunch of rectangular shapes, each showing different shots from the video and with different colours filtered in or out, into different orders, play around with them, make a lil jigsaw or something.

It's cool! And you can check it out here.

Director of the video Fantavious Fritz had this to say:

"Outside is one of my favourite tracks! It carries such sublime simplicity and unity, like a well-curated collage or painting of sounds. This website came out of a desire to experiment with the internet as a medium and visually portray this idea of collage with video / performance. In 'Outside', the internet serves as a canvas for play with colours, shapes and moving kinetic form, allowing for many different viewings of the piece."

In addition, they've shared a hundred zillion tour dates that takes them from Japan, through North America, to Europe. Have a look just below and maybe you'll be able to see 'em in a city near you. Before that, though, is the regular video for TOPS' 'Outside'.

The track is taken from their latest album Picture You Staring, which you can purchase here if you so wish.
