In the Australian music scene Cut Copy has gone from pioneers to elder statesman with just three EPs and two LPs, spanning a miniscule seven years. The vessel for this stellar feat has been their innovative brand of rock and dance or as it’s often labelled electro-crossover. When Cut Copy broke on JJJ back in 2001 with their debut single Rendezvous they stuck out like a sore thumb. At the time no one else in this country was taking the sensibilities of dance and its technology and applying it to more traditional song structures – not dancey enough for the rave heads and too faggy for the rock-dogs, Cut Copy had a hard road ahead of them turning a scene that was still salivating over Limp Bizkit. Yet through sheer musicality and directions in groove Cut Copy became a festival staple and had crowds from the Big Day Out to Meredith shimmying like they were extras off the set of Xanadu – sans the roller-skates.
