Ex Cops played their first ever LA show last night, opening for Bleached at The Troubadour.

The band kicked off their set with “Ken,” followed by “You Are A Lion, I Am A Lamb,” which set the tone for their band as one of controlled energy, dreamy guitar tones, and lush male-female vocals.

Ex Cops (Brian Harding and Amalie Bruun) were backed by 3 other musicians, and they played to a packed house (mostly full of teenagers).

They played a brand new song that sounded good — nice bass line and chord changes. Ex Cops’ penultimate song was “James,” which sounded way too rushed! “James” is such an amazing song but I couldn’t appreciate it when it was played so fast.

  1. True Hallucinations the debut full length LP from NY’s own Ex Cops. This duo(Brian Harding (ex-Hymns) and Amalie Bruun (ex-Minks), reminds me a lot of Yo La Tengo or the Ravenettes with it’s breezy lo fi pop sounds. This music was sent to me from a label friend, I liked it, and thought I should pass it your way. Listen to the first single off that record below.
