Cut Copy Return with “Airborne” & Sign to Astralwerks
Cut Copy returns with “Airborne” – the band’s first official single in four years. Equal parts guitar jangle, celestial synths and bottom-heavy bassline, the infectious track shifts gears multiple times, balancing images of chaos (“jagged teeth made of glass, rising up”) with the resolute chorus: “That don’t stop me.” The song offers an early glimpse of the new material the GRAMMY-nominated Australian band has been recording in studios around the world. “Airborne” – available for streaming and download HERE – was produced by Ben Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective) and marks Cut Copy’s first release on Astralwerks.
Cut Copy will perform at several U.S. festivals this fall, including Luna Lights, CRSSED and Austin City Limits. The band’s summer Australian tour will wrap up with an appearance at the Splendour in the Grass Festival.
Initially a bedroom recording project by frontman Dan Whitford, Cut Copy evolved into a full-fledged band with guitarist Tim Hoey, drummer Mitchell Scott, and bass player Ben Browning. The quartet’s four studio albums include 2011’s Zonoscope, which won two ARIA Awards and was nominated for a GRAMMY, and 2013’s Free Your Mind, which Under The Radar awarded 8 out of 10 stars.
