Born, raised and residing in Sheffield, a city synonymous with jarringly honest indie rock, Joe Carnall (Milburn) has been a reluctant figurehead of the Steel City scene for over a decade. Eager to explore a different space, he has embarked on a new venture with the help of Arctic Monkeys’ Matt Helders. The result is Good Cop Bad Cop. Penned by Carnall and produced by Helders, the project resides in the not so grey area between man and machine.
Good Cop Bad Cop is Carnall’s way of making sense of his world past, present and future by harnessing outbursts of creativity. He writes with vigour, joy, passion, a touch of vitriol and overwhelming honesty. The collision of light and dark where, invariably, the sunshine always peaks through.
