Bad Cop Release “Chicago Lady”, Hit SXSW

It’s been a bit since Bad Cop released their last single, “Wet Lips.” Summer of last year to be exact, and shit, even though that fucker was a blur, it still seems like it’s been a long time. Since then, they’ve been laying relatively low while they recorded their new EP, “The Light On” along with even more tracks for what’s going to be their second LP. The new EP is due out this summer and the LP early next year. You probably could have guessed this, but yes, I have heard the new EP and yeah, it’s great. While Harvest the Beast was more chaotic, this EP is more mature and a lot more melodic. You’ll get what I mean when you hear the title track, but it’s a step in the right direction. For a taste of what’s to come, the band’s released a new video for the first single off the EP, “Chicago Lady.” If the bass line doesn’t get you, the hook will.

Chicago Lady – Bad Cop

The band is about to hit SXSW to burn down one of the worst states in the Union (Arkansas is number one in case you were wondering). They’re bringing with them practically everyone on Jeffery Drag Records to help out, so needless to say, if you’re in Austin this week, your “bands to see” list just got longer. Check out their page on Facebook for updated lists of when the bands are playing. I’ve listed Bad Cop’s shows below for your convenience.
