It can be difficult for punk bands to set themselves apart from the pack. By the very nature of the genre, punk music tends to sound very similar and that can make carving out an individual identity particularly challenging. Up-and-coming four-piece Bad Cop/Bad Cop have managed to do it however, with the release of debut full-length “Not Sorry.”

Bad Cop CDAn all-female outfit comprised of Stacey Dee (vocals/guitar), Jennie Cotterill (vocals/guitar), Linh Le (bass/vocals) and Myra Gallarza (drums), Bad Cop/Bad Cop shine on the razor-sharp 13-track, 37-minute slab. Injecting their music with big hooks and harmonies, it’s easy to see why the band has generated a ton of buzz since forming in 2011.

“We are grateful for the scene we came up in as well as for the opportunity to share our music with new audiences,” Cotterill says. “We never thought we’d have the privilege to sign with (Fat Wreck Chords), but we’re sure gonna do our best now that we have.”

Bad Cop/Bad Cop come out of the gate firing on all cylinders with “Nightmare,” “Anti Love Song” and “Here’s to You,” and later score with “Joey Lawrence,” “I’m Alright,” “Old Dogs,” “Rip You to Shreds” and “Firewater.” Rock on, ladies. (Jeffrey Sisk)
