True Hallucinations

Formed in 2011 by Brian Harding (ex-Hymns) and Amalie Bruun (ex-Minks), the duo self-released a short-run, homespun CD-EP of hazy, lo-fi recordings featuring Harding’s opaque bedroom-pop songwriting juxtaposed with the duo’s sun-kissed harmonies. Two of the tracks, 'You Are a Lion, I Am a Lamb' b/w 'The Millionaire,' were soon released to the world on vinyl as the premiere release from Fat Possums new imprint label Other Music Recording Company. The pair continued to write new songs while simultaneously playing more live shows, now working as a proper five-piece rock band with the addition of good friends Kai Kennedy, Leif Huckman and Sam Bair. The songs on True Hallucinations are effortlessly catchy, built from a timeless blend of gentle, somnambulant harmonies, chiming guitars, and loose swinging rhythms. You can detect influences ranging from vintage British and New Zealand indie pop (imagine the Chills covering Nick Lowe during 'James'), to Factory Records atmospherics ('You Are a Lion, I Am a Lamb'), and closer to home, a little Velvets/Feelies jangle ('Broken Chinese Chairz'), along with a good dose of classic power-pop and the guitar-heavy sound of Teenage Fanclub ('Ken,' 'Separator'). Yet in spite of this list of influences and precursors, Ex Cops’ music is very much their own, sounding at once both classic and modern, their sugary pop songs enshrouded in a unique psychedelic haze.
