It’s been pretty incredible hearing the evolution of Brooklyn’s Ex Cops over the past few years. From hearing their early tracks which drifted between electro-tinged dream pop and hazy lo-fi to their current work in melodically rich amalgamations of post punk, lo-fi, and guitar pop - every step has been confident and exciting. Now, as the band preps it’s new full length, they drop one of their best tracks yet - an infectious slice of dark pop that features Ariel Pink and sounds like some wonderful imaginary session between the Beach Boys and The Jesus and Mary Chain. It’s a killer track and a great reason to be looking forward to the end of October when their new album Daggers finds it way to release.
