Cut Copy Takes You From Coastal Dance To Electropical Nirvana In “Airborne”

Between party & enlightenment.

Aussie quartet, Cut Copy, bounces between techno and pop in their new electropical single “Airborne.” It is their first single since three years and showcases rich, gleaming beats that are constructed around a catchy baseline. Instead of settling for a linear, steady groove, they venture out to colorful syncopations and jagged beats that send you to an electropical party somewhere in the coast. Towards the end, the quartet raises the ambiance and suspends you to a yacht nirvana. Vocally, Cut Copy nails a tone that craftily finds equilibrium between amusing you and musing over thoughts:

Formed back in 2001, Cut Copy have already released four albums, an EP and bunch of remixes. They are mostly known for their second record, In Ghost Colours, which gained them wide acclaim around the world. While Cut Copy hasn’t announced any album release or title yet, they’ve been working on it since 2015. If you want more info, go see them live and ask them in person:
