Biography

Sometimes things have to get worse before they get better. While the two summers of love were birthed from burdening times, Vietnam and 10 years of Thatcher’s reign, they were one hell of a party. Unprecedented explosions of youth culture which tore down the walls of perception through communal elation and celebration. Cut Copy’s Free Your Mind creates a fantasy of the next youth ...

You can't go wrong buying this album.
Demon Ted
It's not entirely somber, there are some great dancey songs as well.

Makes you want to dance and cry at the same time.

I was eating breakfast at a local diner/music store in Seattle and this was playing in the background. I'd never heard it before and it had a definite re-infused eighties sound. I'm a cautious cd buyer, but it was such a good cd that I bought it on the spot. I've sinced loaned it to two of my music aficianado friends who also loved it. It's not compelling because the tracks are drop-dead gorgeous or demanding, and I don't think it has pretensions of either. It's just good mood music, slightly wistful at times with a great beat. I like it because I can put it on and still think about other things, but also find myself bopping along. So, if you like music that isn't challenging, but enjoyable, and you're missing the eighties, then I think this is a great cd for you.

If you think you died and went to heaven when you first heard Postal Service, then you'll relive that experience 10x over with Cut Copy.

Composed of mostly synth and guitars with danceable beats and a melancholic britpop-esque post-punk flair, I'd describe Cut Copy as "electro-synthpop-dance-rock." Recalling everything alternative 80's, you hear references to the best of Depeche Mode, The Smiths, New Order, Human League, mixed with a Daft Punk-ian shake of house-y funk.

All the tracks are incredibly, incredibly catchy--the kind that stay in your head for days. The kind you cry over because they're just so good.

My standout picks:

"Future" - you'll hear this track tearing it up at quite a few NYC/Bklyn bars and lounges. True electropop confection perfection, brilliantly produced. From the catchy "ahhh, ahhh ahhh" chorus to the sweet lil' blips and bleeps, brooding Sumner-like vocals, Marr-guitar styling--every 80s new wave band trying to make a comeback only WISHES they could have come out with this single.

"Saturdays" - Bouncy, bass-y, hooky, funky. Imagine roller-skating in a swirling discoball rink wearing striped tube socks, giant headphones, and shorts. Great contrast between the insouciant, cold, near-robotic vocals and the unabashed, juicy happiness of this 70's flavored electro-funk single.

"Saturdays (reprise)" - oh man. Pixies, Smiths, Interpol, Joy Division, Cure... this melancholy, somber, minor-key, acoustic version of the above track just KILLS it.

"Going Nowhere" - Cut Copy's best example of how dance and rock can co-exist, creating a frothy bassline and beat while retaining emotion, soul, and gritty depth. Makes you want to dance and cry at the same time.

recommended by a friend with superb taste, cut copy was a band i knew i would instantly be drawn to.

the album art was the initial indication.

mannequins. . .so hot right now. [and in the 80s]

daft punk-esque hooks, but distant dancing relatives- twice removed.

clearly new order and gary numan's estranged lovechild.

i love it. and so should you.

my advice: pick up this album, jump in your lamborghini, feather your hair, turn up your collar, splash on some polo, and head back to the time when reagan was king.

This is very special record. Following up from the more electronic debut 'I thought of numbers' this is huge leap forward for Cut Copy. It has electronic influnces and you can hear that throughout, but the best thing is, it rocks. I stuggle to file this music because it is so diverse. There are a lot different sounds that make up a Cut Copy track. The layering on one track gives way to something simple and attention grabbing on the next track. The composition of the album is special. I found 'Bright like neon love' inspiring in so many ways. It is pushing the boundaries between rock and dance, but in a cool way. This is something new and refreshing. If you like what the Rapture, Franz Ferdinand, the Liars and Phoenix are doing you should love this. In mentioning those bands, I have to say that Cut Copy goes beyond any of those in where the music is derived from. You may hear some Prince, Blondie, Fleetwood Mac, Joy Division, Guided by Voices and Bowie if you listen up. If you get a chance to see these guys live, grab it, otherwise you can make do with this peice of gold... gold I tell ya!

This is a foookin great album. The whole thing has a same-ness of sound, but is really quite varied. Some of the tracks are straight up electro while some are guitar based rock, but they pull it all off with such ease. GREAT songs, that flow into one another easilly and effortlessly. People talk about the synths and guitars on this album, but the bass is what propels it all. Whether its synth bass or real (and same with the percussion), the driving bass lines make it possible for the guitars and keys to do their thing. 'Autobahn Music Box', 'That Was Just a Dream', 'Saturdays', 'Zap Zap', are all pretty much perfect pop songs. The music makes you want to dance like crazy, but the lyrics are all about lonliness, sadness, longing, yearning. Its perfect. 'The Twilight' rocks in a way that sounds a lot (musically, not lyrically) like early PiL, 'Bright Neon Payphone' is an amazing rocker that for me is the climax of the album. All of the rest of it builds up to this song where the depth of the sadness and lonliness alluded to in other places on the albums is really exposed. Its great songwriting, the music rocks, the whole overall sound is, well, its hard to top. Then the album finishes with 'A Dream', a perfect comedown from the rest of the album, slow, bouncy, wistful. The whole album is so damn pretty! Beautiful music, everything I love all blended together into one great record. way to guy cut copy!
