Album Review: Cut Copy - Zonoscope (Modular)
Drowning in the synth soundscape, an underwhelming follow up album
After the ubiquitous presence of ’80s-indebted music last year, a follow-up with little stylistic deviation isn’t a thrilling proposition: ‘Take Me Over’ steals a hook from fellow Australians Men At Work, adds “ooh-ooh” backing vocals and just about gets away with it.
‘Where I’m Going’ packs in a Kasabian-aping chorus, while expansive 15-minute closer ‘Sun God’ hints at what might have been – namely an excursion into less familiar territory.
