Hearts On Fire
Narrowly missing out on TOTW due to a ruling by Magistrates (door’s that way, Chester – Ed), ‘Hearts On Fire’ sees Cut Copy on their best form yet. Squeezing New Order guitars, yacht-rock saxophone, rave squeals, old-school sampling and synth breakdowns into three-and-a half minutes, it makes you wish it was an hour long and you were back at Glasto doing the mashed-up hands-aloft air-typewriter dance all over again.
