Cut Copy announce new album

Releases

Cut Copy

Cut Copy have announced that they will release their third album, ‘Zonoscope’, on 7 Feb via Modular. Speaking about the recording of the album, frontman Dan Whitford said: “All the way along we had this weird vision of a tropical, jungle, tribal sound. A place or an idea that we wanted to reach with some of the songwriting; we wanted to explore a looping hypnotic trance and revise the whole palette of what Cut Copy was about”.

The band worked with producer Ben Allen, who has previously worked with Animal Collective, Deerhunter and Gnarls Barkley, in Atlanta. He too had an influence on the new record’s sound, Whitford says: “Ben comes from a different perspective having started out in hip hop/urban culture. [He also tapped into] Atlanta’s history of southern music, funk and soul. We were really interested in throwing ourselves into something like that, rather than working with someone from the house music or indie guitar world”.

You can download a track from the album, ‘Where I’m Going’, for free from here: www.modularsendit.com/where.zip

The band will also play a handful of gigs in the UK and Ireland in March.
