Bad Cop / Bad Cop are a band that are pretty much the definition of awesomeness. The band is completely made up of bad ass girls who write and perform the punk rock music that they love and want to share with the world. Stacey Lee sings vocals and plays the guitar, Jennie Cotterill also sings vocals and plays guitar, Myra Gallarza is rad on drums and Linh Le plays bass and sings. They are originally from California and are currently signed up to Fat Wreck Chords.
They take inspiration from bands like SWAT, NARCS, Law Breakers and Patrol Cars.
They are a fairly new band, with their debut album only arriving on the pop-punk scene in 2015. Their tracks are really catchy and will leave you wanting to become friends with these powerful women. One thing you can never say about this band is that they are sell outs, they give their opinions in their songs and don’t care what ANYBODY thinks about them.
Since their early days, they
have only continued to grow as they’ve performed all over America with bands they love. Members come and go in some bands but these girls have stuck together since the beginning, becoming best friends and growing in music together. They have such an awesome vibe when they are on stage but that doesn’t mean their technique in the recording studio has faded. They actually have a new album ‘Warriors’ and it’s even more amazing than any of their previous stuff.
Warriors is available to download right now and it features some amazing songs including ‘Retrograde’, ‘Why Change A Thing’, ‘Brain is for lovers’ and of course, ‘Warriors’.
If you are pissed off at America since the election of Trump, share the pain of the girls as they give their opinion in this political track with a big ‘F*** You’ in Warriors! There is a really classic vibe to this album, while Bad Cop / Bad Cop manage to remain modern at the same time. Their fast paced music goes with their beautiful vocals perfectly. The girls certainly let their emotions flow in many of these tracks and this only makes them an even better band that are sure to be around for a long while yet. Their album art is friggin awesome and the
girls are not afraid to say what they really feel in their lyrics.
Fat Wreck Chords are not hugely known but they are a great record label that are home to many underrated bands in America. In addition to the new album,Bad Cop / Bad Cop are regularly playing gigs around America and would be worth checking out. An evening of awesomeness is promised, if you are in the company of these artists. They are actually playing at San Diego and California later this year. Well they don’t get to travel as far afield as other bands just yet, hopefully this is all to come for the talented foursome. In general, every fan of fun punk music could do with having Bad Cop / Bad Cop in their music collection.
