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).
