About Cut Copy
Melbourne, Australia group Cut Copy rose to prominence on the wave of bands who mixed dance-friendly grooves with vintage new wave and synth pop sounds to create a hybrid that sounded good in a club and at home. Their contribution to the party was Dan Whitford's knack for melody and the group's atmospheric feel as captured first on the 2008 album In Ghost Colours and its indelible single "Hearts on Fire." The band added to their basic template as they grew, with disco and '90s dance music sounds thrown into the mix, culminating in 2017's stadium-sized Haiku from Zero. No matter how much the group added -- or stripped away, as on 2020's relatively stark Freeze, Melt -- they never strayed from the core basics that helped them stand apart from the dance-rock crowd.
