Belfast alternative rock trio Hot Cops have been at this band thing since 2013. A fine job they’ve done of it too. Following plays from BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music, the Belfast based trio played the Introducing Stage at BBC’s Big Weekend Festival, as well as supporting The Front Bottoms and The Orwells. Drawing influence from the likes of Deerhunter, Pavement, and Cloud Nothings, the young group have shaped an original sound normally unavailable to those at such a young age.

Reviews:

Belfast three-piece band Hot Cops draw their inspirations from raggedy indie and grunge dirges. Live, they are beamed from the original era with withdrawn stares and loose clothing. On record, it’s all angst-driven slow rock with spiralling Pavement-esque melodies.Nialler9

Hot Cops are often compared to heavyweight bands such as Parquet Courts, Pavement, and Cloud Nothings. However, to compare the young trio is a gross injustice to their originality. State.ie
