PREMIERE: Ex Cops – “The Millionaire”

tumblr_lhvzvko9xi1qaqvluBack in January, I was fortunate enough to be able to bring you the debut of two new songs from Ex Cops, the new project from Brooklyn’s Brian Harding. My good fortune continues, as I’ve now got another one to share, and this…this you’ve got to hear. Recorded just a few nights ago, “The Millionaire” is an absolutely gorgeous ballad, led by warm synths, a steady, muffled beat and an electric guitar that shimmers like the sun reflecting on a dark blue lake. But it’s Harding’s voice that makes this truly special, and the moment you hear him whisper-sing his first line, I’m sure you’ll agree. Prepare to be haunted in the best possible way. 

Ex Cops – “The Millionaire”

Harding is currently wrapping up the White Women EP, which will feature guest vocals from MINKS singer Amalie Bruun. However, there’s talk that this could possibly turn into an album. Time shall tell. For now, enjoy the tunes and, if you’re lucky enough to be attending SXSW this year, don’t miss Ex Cops perform at Swan Dive on Tuesday, March 15th, withGrizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, who’ll be on hand to do a DJ set. Doors open at 9 p.m.
