Cut Copy: Zonoscope

Aussie band Cut Copy came up with the memorable album In Ghost Colours in 2008, a blend of dance, Eighties disco, Sixties West Coast pop, and - a rare thing for dance tinged band - meaningful lyrics. The long awaited follow-up Zonoscope sounds like the love child of Echo and The Bunnymen and Duran Duran. A bit of AHDH is lurking in the backbeat.

With their update of psychedelic pop catapulted into the 21st Century, the band paints trippy broad musical sheets with pinpoint precision.
