"Tragically Alright (ft. Ariel Pink)" by Ex Cops // Daggers (Out 10.28.14 via Downtown Records)
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.

premiere: Indoor Voices - Say (feat. Maja Thunberg)I got a listen to some of the new songs from upcoming Auratic EP and Jonathan Relph wanted to send this new track to the world that they made with the singer from Star Horse.He tells me they’ve worked with “probably one of my favourite bands right now. The first time I heard them I was blown away by Maja’s voice. I got in touch with them and in time, asked her to contribute a vocal to one of the songs. A few weeks ago I was messaging with Maja (on a common mobile phone messaging app) and said almost jokingly that we should make a video for “Say”. A few hours later, clips started arriving in the app and I started editing them together. Once we realized that it was going to actually look kind of cool, she sent me higher quality clips as the originals had been heavily compressed in said app.”
