    Dream pop at its cleanest, most accessible, and possibly best. Whispers of Wild Nothing, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and My Bloody Valentine all appear in tasteful rations Yet, the duo creates an atmosphere that has many textures that are purely their own. "Separator" and "James" are two, single-bred tunes that will likely suck you in immediately, and deeper cuts like "TheDream pop at its cleanest, most accessible, and possibly best.

"Separator" and "James" are two, single-bred tunes that will likely suck you in immediately, and deeper cuts like "The Millionaire" and "Spring Break (Birthday Song)" only solidify the band's versatility and talent as you get further into the album.

    Siket’s haze blunts the sugar-sharp edges of Harding and Bruun’s melodies, but it also ripens their latent nostalgia.

    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.

    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.
