"Win Some, Lose Some single review"


Win Some Lose Some the debut single by Dublin four-piece the Zombie Cops, Is a slick blitzkrieg of guitars pounding against the inner workings of a fragile relationship. The Vedderesque scold of Jamie Hughes and Kevin Fagan is vulnerable brash and scathing-laying themselves bare with every syllable. Already receiving high praise from the likes of The Waterboys' Mike Scott. They are building a reputation of being the finest unsigned band in Ireland and its easy to see why. If you like Pearl Jam and Jimmy Eat World you'll find its hard to resist the allure of the Zombie Cops - Alternative Irish Music Review


"Taking Lives Single Review"

We loved the previous track Win Some Lose Some and the new track they are putting out there is called Taking Lives and i have to say i really like it. The complimentary harmonies of the dual lead singers alongside the guitar which has hints of influences from the like of Jimmy Eat World, The Atari’s in that darker rock-pop type of sound. It’s a grower too as it’s gone from first few listens to Ipod in less than 24 hours. - Golden Plec


"Taking Lives Single Review"

Taking Lives is the second single from Dublin’s Zombie Cops is a complete change in tact from the excellent debut Win Some Loose Some. The song builds slowly from a progish “Down On The Upside” era Soundgarden guitar intro underlayed by a “On a Rope” type rhythm figure.

The call and response vocals of Kevin Fagan and Jamie Hughes work well throughout the entire song. Its back to more familiar musical territory for the verse and choruses as Jimmy Eat World, Open Hand, and Incubus influences are once again apparent. With a touch of Editors guitar trickery the song slows before ending on a flourish with a recap of the main riff. - Tickets There


"Gig review"

Dublin four piece Zombie Cops got the night off to a great start with an entertaining and up beat set. They have a very definite American influence in their sound (Think Incubus or Foo Fighters) and would probably best be described as indie rock with a pop twist. Their songs are very radio friendly with some catchy choruses and I can definitely imagine turning on my radio and hearing a Zombie Cops song blasting back at me. Frontman Kevin Fagan has a great voice and despite the American influence in their music he manages to avoid the pitfall of so many Irish singers of developing an American twang when he sings. But Fagan isn’t the only singer in the band and vocally they were probably at their best when vocals were shared with guitarist Jamie Hughes. The band’s debut single ‘Win Some Lose Some’ was my favourite track of the night, great vocals, killer guitar and drums and a chorus that stays in your head long after you’ve heard it. - Heineken Music

Pleasantly melodic with a '90s Americana shuffle, the debut single by Dublin foursome Zombie Cops is a confident and boisterous first alt-rock outing. File under promising. - Hotpress
