The beloved Aussie electro-pop/synth-rock act, still signed to Melbourne’s monstrously popular Modular People label, has managed to keep its signature blend of dance music and indie-rock sounding fresh, while other bands upcycling 80’s sounds seem to have gotten trapped in a time vacuum that already feels passé. Nostalgia is a slippery slope – and while other bands binged on 80’s synths, Cut Copy’s fusion of 60’s psychedelia, 70’s disco, 80’s new wave and acid house, and 90’s house sounds decidedly contemporary. One thing’s for sure: Cut Copy put on a proper spectacle. Expect an effusive show that will surely be brimming with the band’s relentless energy and ever-ebullient enthusiasm—that, and some impressive lighting!

Australian indie electronic group Cut Copy take many of their cues from contemporaries like Air, Daft Punk, and LCD Soundsystem, but with a distinctly pop sensibility that draws on classic AM radio pop singles from the 1970s and '80s, with elements of vintage disco and synth pop that appeal to song-based listeners as well as to club kidz. Cut Copy started in 2001 as a solo project by songwriter, producer, and DJ Dan Whitford, who released the single 1981 and the EP I Thought of Numbers before drafting in other members to fill out his synth- and sample-based sound. Bassist and guitarist Tim Hoey and drummer Mitchell Scott debuted on Cut Copy's first full-length album, Bright Like Neon Love, released in the summer of 2004. After several successful singles were spun off the album (including Saturdays, Future, and Going Nowhere), Universal's Island Records imprint picked up the trio's international distribution in 2006. Following an inventive Whitford live DJ mix that was released in 2006 as Fabriclive.29 (including such unexpected delights as Ciccone Youth's noisy deconstruction "Into the Groove[y]" and Roxy Music's suave "Angel Eyes" alongside the usual Goldfrapp and Soulwax), the band proper returned in early 2007 with a new single, Hearts on Fire. Cut Copy's third album, In Ghost Colors, debuted at the top of Australia's ARIA charts in 2008 and was placed on a number of publications' year-end lists. After adding a fourth member, bassist Ben Browning, the group released its third album, Zonoscope, in 2011 and following a tour, then a brief hiatus, the band hit the studio again to record its fourth album. Inspired heavily by late-'80s/early-'90s dance music (from acid house to Black Box), Free Your Mind was released in late 2013 by Modular and new American label Loma Vista. The record was innovatively promoted with pre-release listening sessions taking place at six specific worldwide locations for all those with a smartphone in range of the coordinates.
