Ben Browning – “Make It Easy”

Cut Copy was initially formed as Dan Whitford’s solo project, so even though he’s been joined by Ben Browning and several others, it makes sense that as the group’s bassist, Browning might be inclined to strike out on his own. Browning kickstarted his solo career with 2012’s Lover Motion Ep. Now, “Make It Easy” lead… More »

Cut Copy – “Lights Shine On” (Stereogum Premiere)

Generally speaking, EDM is perceived to purvey a very specific sound and experience, even if there seems to be no real logic to defining the term itself. While its occupied its space over the last several years, a handful of more retro-indebted dance-indie bands have continued to plug along, putting out albums that seem loaded… More »

Cut Copy – “Meet Me In A House Of Love” Video

Last year Cut Copy embraced their psychedelic side like never before with Free Your Mind, a record that acted like a summer blockbuster reboot of Primal Scream’s 1991 classic Screamadelica.

Watch Cut Copy Play Kimmel

The floppy-haired Australian dance-rockers Cut Copy are the sort of band who practically seem genetically engineered to play festival stages, and Jimmy Kimmel Live put them on one last night. Or, actually, Jimmy Kimmel Live put them on one several weeks ago. For reasons that I can’t imagine, the band taped their appearance at the… More »

Cut Copy – “We Are Explorers” Video

We Are Explorers” is one of the highlights from Free Your Mind, the sorely underrated album that the Australian dance-rock trio Cut Copy dropped last year.

Cut Copy – “Free Your Mind (Spiritualized Remix)”

As Cut Copy dish out their series of remixes for “Free Your Mind” you can tell it’s a smart choice to include Spiritualized. “Free Your Mind,” both the song and the full album, is a glitzy and colorful rush and adding in J. Spaceman’s distorted come-down provides a welcome change from all the aural candy-flipping. More »

Cut Copy – “Free Your Mind” Video (Feat. Alexander Skarsgård)

Free Your Mind” is the title track from the new album by the great Australian dance-rock band Cut Copy. It is, sadly, not an En Vogue cover, or probably even an En Vogue reference. (Was En Vogue even a thing in Australia? Man, I hope so.) It is, however, an absolutely gorgeous piece of shimmering,… More »
