One of my most epic evenings at SXSW this past March involved Cut Copy. It was the last night of my annual migration to Austin, and I had no idea what to do since most of my music buddies had already left. Serendipity brought me to the band’s headlining set on Rainey Street. I didn’t think I’d be able to get in to the show, since I expected a stupendously long line, but thanks to my music badge, I made it right in and danced to my heart’s content. And now, Cut Copy’s bassist Ben Browning has made a splendorous return with new solo music to keep me moving. We last heard from him two years ago when he dropped exuberant Friends Of Mine. Now he charms us aplenty with a new song appropriately named Sunshine Baby. It’s a golden luscious, sweetly candied, & kaleidoscopic twirling track that melds chromatic italo-wave with glamorous disco funk. Sunshine Baby will be on Ben Browning’s forthcoming sophomore album named Even Though. He says of his next  album, which arrives on June 22nd: “After listening to this record I hope people feel like they’ve gone on a smooth psychedelic journey through a colorful musical world. I wanted to create an album that people would want to play in their homes whilst cooking dinner or getting high and imagine what they’re hearing comes from a land created by Jim Henson – or perhaps they’re listening a lost George Harrison album recorded in the Caribbean and discovered on a VHS tape 30 years later."​​​​​​​

Many a Cut Copy aficionado are celebrating the release of Cut Copy’s long awaited new album Haiku From Zero. Of course, there’s no better way to celebrate anything than a glorious dance party. German producer Ferdinand Weber has offered up an absolutely divine remix of Cut Copy’s Standing In The Middle Of The Field to keep us rejoicing through the night. You might end up watching the sun come up to this deep hypnotic, gloriously pumping dance remix. Meditative meadows, laced with ambient synths, are met by exhilarating palisades in the “middle of this field”. You can order Cut Copy’s new album, here.

I normally prefer my rainbows multi-colored, but Australian synthpop and indietronica legend Cut Copy has convinced me black rainbows are just as spectacularly scintillating. Earlier this year, Dan Whitford and his band caused quite a euphoric commotion when they returned with their first new material in years on Astralwerks. While Standing In The Middle Of The Field and Airborne are nothing short of brilliant, Black Rainbows’ got my heart in a vice grip with its beach-y, funky pop and iridescent spiraling electronica. Out of the three, it’s most like Cut Copy’s older hits. I’m hit by a sudden wave of nostalgia while I twirl in endless circles to the divinely mellifluous treat. Black Rainbows will be on Cut Copy’s forthcoming album, Haiku From Zero. Pre-order before it drops on September 22nd, here.

I was practically bouncing off my walls in joy last month when esteemed Australian synthpop and indietronica purveyors Cut Copy returned with their first new single in years on Astralwerks. They gave us a chunky sashaying, psychedelic jangling tune named Airborne. We depart that verdant lush jungle and venture out onto a magnificently sprawling savanna with Dan Whitford and the rest of the band as they follow Airborne up with an entrancing new song named Standing In The Middle Of The Field. This rhythmic hooking, hypnotic burbling offering is as magical as Airborne was, with its opulent loops of kalimbas, cowbells, and bubbly synths. Cut Copy will be releasing their first studio album in nearly four years, Haiku From Zero, on September 22nd. The tastes we’ve been getting from the album showcase a theme that percolates through the album, the need to “cut through the noise, a desire to focus.” Pre-order Haiku From Zero, here.

It’s been an eternity since we last heard from Cut Copy, so it’s a mighty fine day when the Australian synthpop and indietronica four piece drop new music upon our eager ears. The Grammy nominated four piece, lead by Dan Whitford, are back after four long years with a fresh single named Airborne, out today via Astralwerks. The chunky sashaying, psychedelic jangling tune takes us deep into a verdant jungle with its squishy synths, plucky guitar, and suave bass. Airborne is a dynamic disco funk and dance pop carousel ride, and it offers an early glimpse into the new material the band has been recording in studios around the world. You can grab the summery tune from major retailers, here.

Some of you might have missed the memo, but Ben Browning, a long time member of Australian synthpop band Cut Copy, is releasing a solo album. earlier this month, he revealed first single Make It Easy, and he’s followed it up with this spectacularly exuberant treat, Friends Of Mine, which I’m digging even more than the debut. Friends Of Mine is a radiant disco dance pop song with some of the qualities I love very much about Cut Copy, but more shimmery dreamy and summery warm. It’s an irresistible jam from Ben’s Turns LP, out next month on June 15th.

Alright, I’ve waited almost a week to share this dope remix, since it was initially a Thissongissick premiere, but I can wait no longer. Plus, I just listened and danced to the original edit of Cut Copy’s Meet Me In A House Of Love last night, LIVE, at Outside Lands Music Festival, so it only seems fitting to share this remix by TJANI today. The New York City producer turns in an intoxicating, delicious deep house rendition of the Australian synthpop act’s song.

And Cut Copy’s back, with another unreleased tune to join the ones we’ve heard so far off the Australians’ new deluxe re-release of last year’s Free Your Mind, an album that was overlooked by some, when it shouldn’t have. Believers its a fantastic electronic jam, rolling with pulsing, dance inducing synths and Dan Whitford’s always welcome, familiar voice.
