Cut Copy will be releasing their new album Free Your Mind on November 5th. Pre-orders are now up.
The musical lovechild of Melbournite Dan Whitford, Cut Copy was originally a solo project for Whitford to exercise his love of sampling and instrumental hip-hop. Not too long after the project’s conception, Whitford recruited pals Tim Hoey and Mitchell Scott, traded in the sequencers for soundtracks, and recorded the I Thought of Numbers EP in 2001. Three years later, the posse eventually solidified the Cut Copy sound – scuzzy disco, post-post-punk, electric rock, space pop – on their debut album Bright Like Neon Love. 2008 saw the release of their critically lauded follow up, In Ghost Colours, cementing the Cutters’ dominance and unique sound.
