Under the notable influence of New Order, Depeche Mode, ELO and Kraftwerk, Cut Copy take pop, electro, 80s new wave and hints of soft rock and post punk and create something entirely unique, heralding the surge in indie-dance crossover alongside bands such as Friendly Fires, Delphic and Metronomy.
Beginning as a solo project for vocalist/keyboardist/guitarist Dan Whitford in 2001, he recruited Tim Hoey and Mitchell Scott two years later. After releasing acclaimed debut album Bright Like Neon Love in 2004, they supported Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party and Mylo before embarking on an Australian tour with Daft Punk in 2007.
Following an excellent Fabriclive mix, second album In Ghost Colours and dancefloor-friendly singles Lights & Music and Hearts On Fire have since secured their reputation not just as one of the most innovative synthpop bands of the decade, but also as DJs and innovative remixers, most recently transforming The Juan Maclean’s Happy House.
Latest album Zonoscope is released on 8 February 2011 on Modular.
Support comes from Holy Ghost! (DFA).

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
