Shaking off some of the Balearic and acid house leanings heard on older releases, their new tracks favour Afrobeat textures, dubby rhythm sections and sweeping disco synths with an upbeat, effervescent tone that reflects their Melbourne origins.

Despite writing and recording at various studios around the world (Melbourne, Copenhagen, Washington DC, New York and Atlanta), the band still seems to be able to lock into a united sonic front, due in no small part to the guiding ear of producer Ben Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective and Neon Indian) whose finesse with off-kilter pop music helped expand and refine their sound.

Never content to conform to the mainstream of electro music, Cut Copy has succeeded in creating a singular energy and vibe. Don’t miss these Aussie legends playing some of their catchiest and most adventurous songs to date.

Cut Copy reassert their ability to turn even moody introspection into floor-filler bliss

Black Rainbows


Inspired by Berlin’s classical history and dank dancefloors, the trio’s bricolage beats initially owed as much to Steve Reich and Philip Glass as they did to minimal techno, blending traditional concert hall technique with the euphoric abandon of club music.

The resulting effect is often a fascinating battle between man and machine, with strings vying for space against industrial-sounding instrumentation that leads to breathtaking festival fuelled crescendos.
