Commenting on the video, the band shared:
“The director (Daniel Bäckström) approached us with a script for the video to the song ‘Good Cop Bad Cop’ and it was obvious to us that he not only understood the very premise of the lyrics, but also that had a clear vision of how he was going to put images to our lyrics and music. We are very excited about the result and thankful to have had the chance to work with both Daniel and actress Sanna Bråding, who plays the lead in this video brilliantly.”
Addressing the song itself, they added:
“‘Good Cop Bad Cop’ is an attempt to put words and music to an inner dialogue. The dialogue that often ignites, explodes and grows into new, dark forms. The dialogue that is defined by anxiety, frustration, self-pity and narcissism. The song deals with the feeling of duality, the feeling of being in a perpetual struggle between reason and chaos, the schizophrenic oscillation between one’s demons and better angels.”
