New: Cut Copy – Take Me Over {0}

Sydney’s Cut Copy is one of my favorite bands of the last decade. Needless to say, the release of their new album, Zonoscope, will be greeted with rapturous applause. Thanks to the wonders of the internet, I’ve been able to indulge in the demo of their upcoming single, “Where I’m Going,” and, as of today, was able to hear their first official single “Take Me Over.”

The track exhibits a heavy synthesis of 80′s pop songs from Fleetwood Mac (“Everywhere”) and Men At Work (“Land Down Under”). This is no surprise given the band’s affinity for new wave/synth-pop in the style of late 80′s New Order singles. Nonetheless, I detect maturation in their technique and wouldn’t be surprised if the new album deviated from their signature sound. Either way, color me enthusiastic.

Zonoscope drops in early February of next year. Let the countdown begin.
