“the spirit of the UK’s second summer of love, circa 1988, evoked the old-fashioned way: a DJ spinning records in Melbourne’s burgeoning underground dance music scene.”
“ …the psychedelia of the late ’60s, the raw electronics of early British acid house, and the swirling, sampler-and-guitar creations of the shoegazer stylists My Bloody Valentine.”
– The New York Times
“ …as soulful and wholesome as they are futuristic and danceable.”
Cut Copy have grown from a bedroom project to an international festival staple that never fails to leave thousands enraptured. Each release and tour has invited fans internationally one step closer into their world full of ecstatic peaks broken up by quiet moments of melancholy and beauty. Their vision is clearer than ever before on their fourth studio album, Free Your Mind, released November 5th via Loma Vista/Modular.
The album is now streaming in full at NPR “First Listen” (and available for pre-order via iTunes.)
Free Your Mind was strongly influenced by the two “Summers of Love,” which were birthed from burdening times – Vietnam and 10 years of Thatcher’s reign. Through unprecedented explosions of youth culture, communal elation and celebration, these eras provided a spirit that the band embraced – the need to tear down the walls of perception while creating a fantasy of what the next youth revolution might sound like. The result is a sound of a band that has been sending masses into abandon for years.
Hailed for their energized live show, the band has kicked off an international tour, making stops in LA, Chicago, Austin, Tulsa and more. Fans that aren’t able to catch the band live, can catch them performing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on November 19th.
