Cut Copy - 'Free Your Mind'

Album Info

  • Release Date: November 5, 2013
  • Label: Modula Recordings
7 / 10 Cut Copy have flirted with pastiche in the past, tapping into ’80s pop on their 2004 debut ‘Bright Like Neon Love’ and its follow-up, 2008’s ‘In Ghost Colours’. Latest album ‘Free Your Mind’ is no different, but this time the four Australians are channelling the acid house and Second Summer Of Love scenes of the late ’80s. With the help of producer Dave Fridmann (a man whose cosmic touches can be heard on Tame Impala, MGMT and Flaming Lips records), they’ve created an impressive homage to the era with nods to A Guy Called Gerald and New Order on both the title track and ‘We Are Explorers’. ‘Meet Me In A House Of Love’ and the 808 State bass-bouncing of ‘Footsteps’, meanwhile, sound fresh from the Haçienda. It’s nothing new, but it is fun.
