Cut Copy


Melbourne's Cut Copy is the hottest electro act out of Australia right now. We spoke to Mitchell Brown from the group to get the lowdown.

Does Melbourne still have a dynamic creative scene?
I think it really does—there's no shortage of people in Melbourne doing amazingly cool things creatively, whether it's music, art, fashion, or design. There's a lot going on. Also, for music, there are a million venues, so bands have places to play.

How was the album artwork conceptualised?
When we came to thinking about the album cover art, we wanted something photographic, rather than creating graphics. However, we also wanted something that was a bit colorful, a bit strange and that would be striking and interesting to look at. So we came up with the idea of photographing ourselves and then projecting the photos onto ourselves with colors and lights also projected. We ended up really pleased with the end result. And we've got some pretty cool plans for how the CD cover gets manufactured, which should be cool if it turns out how we hope.
