Those of you who fawned over Ex-Cops will surely want to hear what Brian Harding is up to with Blond Ambition. I mean, if you’ve listened to the Tres Oui EP we just put out, you’ll know that this jam is right up our alley; it’s a quick little ditty dripping with pop and awash with synth feelings. Harding’s dedicated the track to the trans community, encouraging support for those who don’t always feel that they can share their voices; I’m in agreement with that statement. The title of the project’s debut album is Slow All Over, and it’s slated for a release on May 19th.
I love that this song is labeled as power twee by the folks trying to drum up publicity for this Brooklyn based band Ex Cops. I’m into it because I’ve never heard music labeled as such, and it totally fits the style of this band. It really does have this sort of soft-spoken power behind the twee overtones, that gives it this driving pop sound I’m finding irresistible. Here’s to you loving it as much as me.
You can get your hands on the new Ex Cops album, True Hallucinations
, on Januaray 22nd via Other Music Recordings.
