A total left turn for the Australian four-piece.
Festival staples Cut Copy are still working on the follow-up to their 2013 album Free Your Mind, but have released a surprising new project in the interim: An ambient composition released on 400 run cassette tape.
Frontman Dan Whitford says of the release: “Having worked for much of the previous 12 months on a new Cut Copy album, we decided this January it was time to give ourselves a well earned break.
“But instead of retreating to the wilderness or decompressing on a beach somewhere, we spent ten days in the studio making a collection of ambient instrumental works. We wanted to share outtakes from these sessions in all their unedited glory with you, and put them out as an extremely limited edition cassette.”

As we noted in our blog house list earlier this year, Cut Copy were a part of that great lost era into the band’s formation. (They even appeared in a 2007 issue of the print version of FACT.) Revisit their track ‘Hearts on Fire’ from that era.
