In 2015, when they released their self titled, debut EP, Brooklyn's Electro Rock duo Ghost Cop wrote, in the record's bandcamp notes: "GHOST COP thinks the dystopia you dreamt of in the celluloid past is upon us." We are not sure if what they meant with the word "dystopia," at the time, was exactly "Trump as president," but we can confidently say that those words, withtoday's hindsight, sound profetic. Thanks to this guessed forecast, the band finds itself in the enviable position of having a perfect soundtrack ready for the dark times we are living - while other artists are laggin behind, trying to catch up with the sudden change of atmosphere. Their music is a sober, flawlessly produced coldwave with industrial and pop influences. Recommended for all those who think it's time to embrace darkness, or at least start getting used to it... Ghost Cop will be performing at Alphaville on 02.25.
