Arguably one of the most danceable records of the year, Cut Copy’s In Ghost Colours is one of the few albums that I can listen to from start to finish while continuing to dance and sing along. When I first heard “Saturdays” a couple years ago, I wasn’t exactly sold on Cut Copy. Bright Like Neon Love had its catchy moments, but I’d somehow written Cut Copy off as being too retro. What was I thinking? Clearly, I wasn’t thinking.
Now that I’ve listened to more electropop music from Australia, I’ve come to realize that Cut Copy’s 80s dance sound is pretty typical of that scene (i.e. artists on Modular Records). But, since they were the first to catch my attention, Cut Copy has a special place in my heart. How can you not enjoy yourself when you’re listening to “Lights & Music,” “Hearts on Fire,” or “Far Away?”
