Australian electronic royalty Cut Copy are thrilled to announce they’ll return to play two special headline shows this July. Ahead of their highly anticipated Splendour In The Grass appearance, the Melbourne four-piece will play Sydney’s Metro Theatre on Wednesday July 19 thereafter heading to their hometown to play The Croxton in Melbourne on Thursday July 20.
After releasing the ever-so ambient limited edition cassette, January Tape in 2016, the band’s first official release since 2013's Free Your Mind, fans were wondering what would follow. Now 18 months later, audiences can finally get ready as Cut Copy return to where it all began - their epic live show – this time as recent signees of Astralwerks / EMI with promised new music on the way, these shows will give their Australian fans a sneak preview of what's to come.
Special guest Harvey Sutherland will appear at both Sydney and Melbourne shows, bringing his renowned futurist disco and relentless energy to the night. Fresh from their European tour, Melbourne-based Sutherland will be performing with his band Bermuda, prior to Cut Copy taking the stage.
Cut Copy Brisbane, AustraliaCut Copy is the musical lovechild of Melbourne human giraffe and 70’s MOR fetishist Dan Whitford. A project born in the early 21st century, Cut Copy was originally more of a solo project for Dan to exercise his love of sampling and instrumental hip hop, before he took a turn for the dancefloor and released the I Thought Of Numbers EP in 2001.
