SONG OF THE DAY: Cut Copy – “Free Your Mind”
Cut Copy is a modern day Australian synth-pop band, sharing the same label as The Presets. On their last album, they brought in some ’60s/’70s rock elements to their synth sounds, and if the title single for their upcoming album ‘Free Your Mind’ is any indication, it sounds like they are bringing in classic ’80s hip-house and ’90s piano house into the mix. When I interviewed them a few years ago, they said that Ride from the ’90s was a major influence, and with “Free Your Mind” they’ve managed to take their sound, mix in some Electronic, and put a modern twist on it. The video stars Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) as a cult leader in the most delicious and campy fashion, exhibiting many ways to “Free Your Mind.”
