Label: Modular Recordings
Complex says: We've been listening to Aussie band Cut Copy for a while and you can still catch us playing In Ghost Colours on the reg. But this year they came back with a new album styled with enough '80s-inspired, synth-pop rager-ness that we had to make room on the playlist. Revivalism alone isn't enough of a reason to like Zonoscope, but Cut Copy does their favorite decade so well. They added enough live instrumentation this time around that we can consider the album different from before, but we're glad they're riding the same wave we fell in love with from the beginning.
