Topos @ the Wawa is a Pop Rock/Alternative Rock band based out of Nashville, TN. The name means literally "Place at the Wah Wah" meaning the Wah guitar pedal. It blends pop melodies with an incorporation of classic rock, instrumentalities of piano, organ, electric and acoustic guitar and bass and drums.
"Even When They Tell Me" describes the universal human experience of determining when to push for something and when to let go. The verses lyrics and chord progression both demonstrate conflict, trying to push for something even when being told it isn't working. While the chorus's more melodic tone and lyrics are about letting go.
