Cut Copy – In These Arms Of Love


While Cut Copy have become increasingly better performing live, the reverse applies for their albums. The fragments of magic I initially heard on Free Your Mind is now, six months down the line, all but gone.  So hearing news about a new Cut Copy track didn’t exactly set me off running towards the play button. But after living with “In These Arms Of Love” for a few days, I wouldn’t start typing their obituary just yet. Cut Copy left the track off Free Your Mind, a mistake I believe, as it outshines virtually everything on the album. Stadium sized guitars, buzzing alarms, blazing synth riffs, erratic drum play; this is as disorienting and perplexing as Cut Copy gets these days. The track is part of a double side 10-inch set for a Record Store Day release.
