New York bedroom pop rockers Ex Cops, led by Hymns’ Brian Harding and Minks’ Amalie Bruun, will release their debut full-length True Hallucinations on January 22nd via Other Music Recording Co. Produced by John Siket (Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth), the album’s been described as “a mind-altering pop pill” downed with sticky songs that are “built from a timeless blend of gentle, somnambulant harmonies, chiming guitars, and loose swinging rhythms.”

Lead single “James” precisely hammers down that description. Harding cruises along like a morphine’d out Paul Simon, reeling over Bruun’s mountainous harmonies that feel like a sun-baked blanket on a cool beach day. Stream the track below and consult the album’s tracklist shortly after.
