Track Review: Cut Copy - We Are Explorers


It’s happening, the third Summer of Love (2013 - Present) is happening - This Is Happening. With the loss of an important 00s artistic curator in James Murphy, who will take the reigns as the driving force behind dance-punk and its electronic undertones. The answer has been in front of us for many years. It lies in the backs of our minds, and in the dusty shelf of our record collections. We're going back to the days, where whack musicians were being praised on stage. It didn’t' matter if a dancer defined your band, or if one album was your legacy. It's the history and movement that separates the average from the brave and bold, and beautiful in this case. It's not out yet, but Arcade Fire's Reflektor is already shaping up to be the new house for new wave, with Jagwar Ma's Howlin' still Q-tipping dope into your ears. 

Their Australian buddies Cut Copy are taking electronic music to the next level with their fourth album Free Your Mind. They've already established a strong electronic rock sound with Zonoscope, and its magnificent predecessor In Ghost Colours. Dan Whitford heads Cut Copy, and has been leading the production since Zonoscope, and probably has a bigger say in the quartet's direction. If it was up to me, Cut Copy would have taken this direction from the start, but by growing an audience, and a 'Fifa fanbase' as such, they can catapult their upcoming fourth album in to territory never seen by an Australian recording artist - bar Nick Cave.


"We Are Explorers" is a step closer to that part acid / part electro house sound Cut Copy are gunning for. Crank it up - can you jack? Well these four Aussies are certainly pumping fists to the sound of Chicago in the late 80s with this one. "We Are Explorers" lends its hand to a variety of sub-genres, like Cut Copy as an artist do. It's psychedelic trance at heart with the initial synthesizers, and acid house with the percussion and pouncing bass. The atmospheric vocal breaths and piano accompaniment are a modern contrast to the Second Summer of Love in the UK, with Primal Scream and Happy Monday leading this genre mashing of great dance, rock, and energetic music. It's more about the feel and emotions that come with it than any particular musical element. With "We Are Explorers", Cut Copy are entering an age worth coming back to. Free Your Mind is gearing up to be a defining album in the latter stages of 2013.
