With Matt and Kim
Cut Copy is a Melbourne trio very much obsessed with blog-hyped electro acts Daft Punk, LCD Soundsystem and established ‘80s cheese puffs Erasure. But the root here is house: the sunny, mid-afternoon, making-waffles house that can play for hours and hours on repeat. In a possible nod to Cyndi Lauper and Toni Basil, the band's standout cut "Far Away" encapsulates the best of '80s electro-pop, Brit-kissed accents and Ms. Pac-Man shimmies included. There is a reason Butter Team mashed the track up with another '80s relic, "Rad. With Matt and Kim."
