Shake Off Thanksgiving with Cut Copy at Terminal 5 on Friday NightNovember 21st, 2017
What began as a solo project for DJ-producer Dan Whitford blossomed into a trio with guitarist Tom Hoey and drummer Mitchell Scott onboard for the 2004 release of debut full-length Bright Like Neon Love (stream it below) and then turned into a four-piece with bassist Ben Browning joining Cut Copy (above, performing “Future” live in studio for KCRW FM) for their third LP, 2011’s Zonoscope (stream it below). And by then the band’s deft mix of classic disco and electronic pop had people making comparisons to LCD Soundsystem and Daft Punk. The Melbourne, Australia, dance outfit’s fifth long-player, Haiku from Zero (stream it below), came out two months ago. “Cut Copy always seem to discover new ways to fine-tune their inclusive dance music and keep it sounding fresh and vibrant,” said Exclaim. “Cut Copy are a band that know how to make distinctive, original electronica that—crucially—sounds like them,” added the Line of Best Fit. “It’s pretty and smooth; the shimmers and reverb of their earlier records have been compressed into a concentrated essence of what made them great in the first place.” Dance off any lingering Thanksgiving excess and catch Cut Copy live at Terminal 5 on Friday night.
