Cut Copy – Lights Shine On

By Will Oliver, August 25th 2014

Cut Copy

Last year Cut Copy released the rather under-appreciated Free Your Mind. As a big supporter of the band, the record (along with all of their material) is still getting plenty of play from me.

The band released a deluxe version of it earlier in the year, and it includes 5 new songs not released on the album, including “Lights Shine On.”

It actually sounds more like something that could have been attributed to the In Ghost Colours era, meaning its bloody fantastic. Cut Copy never let me down.

Stream “Lights Shine On” below.

[new]: Cut Copy – In These Arms Of Love

By Will Oliver, April 3rd 2014


(Cut Copy @ Terminal 5)

On Record Store Day (April 19), Cut Copy will release a brand new song called “In These Arms Of Love.” You don’t have to wait that long to hear the track though, as an early stream has graced our presence.

In typical Cut Copy fashion they aim high for the stars on the track. It’s both heavy on the electronic effects as well as the ambition. These guys can do now wrong.

Hope you’re able to find yourself a copy come RSD. Stream it below.

Cut Copy @ Terminal 5 (March 22, 2014)

By Will Oliver, March 23rd 2014 — with 1 comment


My adoration of Cut Copy is no secret around these parts. You all know the deal by now. Even so, each journey to one of their live shows is like falling in love with the band for the first time all over again.

Last night I caught the second of their sold out two-night run at Terminal 5. I got there just in time for them, missing out on both Jessy Lanza and Turkish Prison, who opened the show.

I was in the photo pit for the opening run of “Explorers”, “Take Me Over” and “Free Your Mind”, making it one of those times where I had to remind myself to try and take photos instead of singing along. The band just has this ability to take over a room with anthems that are truly larger than life. Their songs just bring out so much joy. The familiar joy that I got to experience again, only this time with all new people, as I placed myself somewhere in the back of the always insanely over-crowded Terminal 5 crowd.

Cut Copy @ Le Poisson Rouge (November 19, 2013)

By Will Oliver, November 20th 2013 — with 1 comment


Cut Copy played a free show last night at the more than intimate for them Le Poisson Rouge hosted by NPR and KCRW’s Metropolis + Morning Becomes Eclectic. MBE’s very own Jason Bentley started the night with a groovy DJ set that got us warmed up. Up next were Cut Copy, who had the crowd hot with anticipation as we were all very well aware that seeing a band like Cut Copy play a venue like this was a once in a blue moon sort of deal.

Naturally they played a healthy dose of new material off of Free Your Mind, their newly released album, which people are coming down on a little bit too harsh, if you ask me. “Free Your Mind” was a bold and exciting opener, that worked perfectly with Zonoscope’s “Where I’m Going.” To all of our pleasure they played all of their best cuts, especially In Ghost Colours material such as “So Haunted”, “Out There On The Ice”, and of course, “Hearts On Fire.”


Dan Whitford sang every word with high expression, throwing his hands in the air or guiding the words with a pose. Tim Hoey is the man to watch on stage, as he pounded away at the drums with his guitar, or guided it against the speakers, creating heavy sounds from the unlikeliest of places. Together, along with the rest of the band (Mitchell Scott & Ben Browning) they are able to create an instantly celebratory sound that makes you feel like life is infinate, and full of endless possibilites. They will make you dance, sing to your voice is shot, and wonder why the fuck they aren’t one of the biggest bands on earth. Any set that ends with the larger-than-life anthem of “Lights and Music” will do that to you.

By the end of their more than generous 13-song set (for a free show), which they packed in somehow just a bit over an hour. It was not only one of their best shows (I’ve now seen them 4 times), but one of the best shows I’ve seen this year, and I’ve seen quite a few.

They’ve already announced a return to NYC, which will go down at Terminal 5 on March 22 (tickets on sale Friday @ noon). It will sell out, and more will follow. I may just be there for each night of the run. They’re that good.

Cut Copy @ Mountain Oasis 2013 (October 27, 2013)

Cut Copy
were actually not on the original line-up. They were a replacement for How To Destroy Angels. As someone who was really pumped to see HTDA I couldn’t help but jump for joy when Cut Copy was announced. Any time I’ve seen them they have been some of the most fun dance shows I’ve been too, so this was exciting.

Just as I assumed they were mind-blowing. The Thomas Wolfe Auditorium was surprisingly rather empty but that did not stop Cut Copy from bringing all that they had to the stage. They played 4 new songs including “Free Your Mind”, “Let Me Show You Love”, “We Are Explorers”, and “Meet Me In a House Of Love.” They were all really amazing live. Man, this new album is stacked (it’s available to stream here).

Find more photos from Cut Copy’s set below.
