Get emotional and tuned in with the sad sounds of Burnt Tapes in this new video, “Robert Cop,” out on their new record released last winter through Wiretap and Lockjaw.

After over 200 shows across Europe, supporting the likes of Spanish Love Songs, Red City Radio, and Pkew Pkew Pkew, London’s Burnt Tapes finally released their debut album, Never Better, on Wiretap Records (U.S.) and Lockjaw Records (U.K.).

Themes of loss, loneliness, nostalgia, and dealing with mental health dominate the record, with searing, dual vocals emotively tying all the lyrics together.

A 90s emo sound, combined with soaring, punk rock choruses, they create a sound that sits between the likes of Polar Bear Club and Real Friends.

“Robert cop is about feeling like you are a cheap, knock-off toy,” the band says.
