Cut Copy
Zonoscope

(Modular) 4/5

With two hit albums already under their belts, Melbourne electro outfit Cut Copy could have rested nice and comfy on their laurels, put out another long player full of their signature, lush, French-inspired electro, and they would have shifted units, no problem. Not that they’ve  reinvented the wheel with third album Zonoscope, but their experimental, year-zero approach to recording has certainly given their sound more depth and vibrancy.

The percussion is gloriously cacophonous, the melodies kaleidoscopic, the synths dappled, the beats pounding and the vibe positively joyous. Dan Whitford overreaches himself on the vocals occasionally but this is small stuff. A real serotonin-booster.
