CRITIC REVIEWS

Consequence of Sound

It’s a swift 30 minutes that’s kept intriguing by sharp songwriting and terse structures.

Under The Radar

A charmed debut that exhibits just how deep the well of pop music runs when a band has a firm grasp of the fundamentals, which Ex Cops possess in spades.

Pitchfork

True Hallucinations is a testament to the duo's unfailingly snappy songcraft and how naturally it can adapt to different forms and settings

Pretty Much Amazing

Until Ex Cops stumble upon a niche and make it their own, their career is going to be eclipsed by listeners hearing influence over innovation in their music.

It's not that original and borrows heavily from influences (Stars, Spiritualized, Magnetic Fields) but the songs are well done and the melodies are very good. There are at least 6 solid tracks on here. (tracks 3-8) There is enough variation in the songs that you could play this at a party and no one would really notice that it was the same band.
