Ex Cops share remix of "Black Soap," play shows (2015)

Ex Cops is the musical brainchild of Amalie Bruun and Brain Harding. The duo’s 2014 sophomore release Daggers, out now on Downtown Records, is full of 90’s alt-rock inspired pop sounds and features production by Billy Corgan. The duo recently shook the Pandora and Baeble venues of SXSW and melted hearts at #1 on Spotify’s Hot Alternative Playlist.
Hot on the heels of the band’s successful SXSW performances, Ex Cops have just announced summer tour dates which will include west coast headlining dates and performances at Tampa’s Big Guava Festival and Detroit’s Mo Pop Festival. Additional tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
The newest addition to Ex Cops’ arsenal of anthemic pop tracks is an Eli Escobar remix of the ’90s alt-rock inspired “Black Soap.” New York producer Eli Escobar isolates Bruun’s effortless vocals, turning the piece into a hypnotizing dance track, which Dancing Astronaut calls “simultaneously current and timeless.” “Black Soap” is is currently building at Alternative radio on 15+ stations including SiriusXM Alt Nation, KNRK Portland, KRBZ Kansas City, KBZT San Diego as well as airing on MTV2, MTVU and Revolt. The “Black Soap” Eli Escobar remix is available for streaming via SoundCloud.
Ex Cops songs “Black Soap” and “White Noise” have been featured in Showtime’s Shameless, CBS’ Stalker and various ads including True Religion and Oliver Peoples earlier this year. Additionally, Ex Cops will be featured performing “Weird with You” in a fashion and music concept video for Viacom’s new groundbreaking fashion concept series FWD this summer.
Ex Cops brings the hook-heavy blast of ’90s alt-rock into a new era on their second album
Daggers. Executive produced by icon-of-form Billy Corgan and produced by Justin Raisen (Sky Ferriera, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue), the record rescues guitar-pop from the bedroom, returning it to the stage it deserves. Billy Corgan provided form and texture to the new tracks over a two- week period in Chicago. The band then took the material to LA for tracking with Raisen and continued collaborating with artists like Ariel Pink, who co-wrote “Burnt Out Love” and features on “Tragically Alright.”
