Sounding distinctly similar to fellow Aussie’s Men At Work, Cut Copy’s clean cut sound accompanied by the 80’s tinged backing feels nostalgic yet refreshing. The single can be downloaded for free from the link below and will be featured on the band’s upcoming LP Zonoscope, which is due out February 7th.
Damon Albarn takes on the stark settings of The xx with an equally mellow yet no less enticing cover of Crystalised.
