Deluxe edition contains DVD featuring a twenty minute documentary of the making of the album
Melbourne's finest Cut Copy have returned armed with their 3rd and most ambitious album to date, Zonoscope.
At a time where the marriage between dance and rock is neighbouring inevitable, Cut Copy walk the line as pioneers of the new sound movement. Their 2008 sophomore set, In Ghost Colours, delivered both timelessness and forward thinking, haunted with machines of the past and sounds of the future. Both audiences and critics worldwide embraced it, landing at the #1 position in their native Australia, receiving almost unanimous global praise and a spot on many key “Best Albums of the Decade” roundups and selling over 200K units globally.
Zonoscope is Cut Copy boiled down to their purest form, a suite of futuristic visions built upon primal rhythm tracks. It is at once their most immediate work to date but also their most sonically exquisite. “Take Me Over” perfectly encapsulates this, its chiming highlife guitars bouncing around tropical percussion reminiscent of an island holiday in a pop song. Zonoscope was dreamt in the comedown of In Ghost Colours, the album which cemented Cut Copy as a global sensation. Their perpetual touring cycle found the band headline a stage at Lollapalooza, become the first Australian act to play Colombia since INXS, have fire marshals shut down an LA performance mid-set as crowds began to buckle the seams of the Henry Fonda Theatre and be raced to the Pitchfork Festival via police escort following a cancelled flight.
