Ex Cops: “Black Soap”

Ex Cops are back with a new song called “Black Soap,” the first track off their second album (release date is October 28th).

“Black Soap” sounds like a late ’90s song, like “Dreams” from The Cranberries.

Ex Cops @ Troubadour (5/8/13)

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.

Ex Cops: “James”

“James” by Brooklyn-based band Ex Cops is the best new song I’ve heard in a while.

The verses are so strong and catchy.
