Of all the known words likely to grab our attention, the ones 'new' and 'Cut Copy single' are some of our favourites. Anyone familiar with the work of the Melbourne band will be fully aware that when it comes to effortless, sun-soaked pop music - no one does it better than this lot.
New single 'Take Me Over' almost takes the whole sunshine vibe a little too far, with an almost calypso opening which fortunately stays on the right side of 'limbo night at an 18-30s night' and is quickly sidelined in favour of a little business-as-usual Cut Copy sounding feelgood pop which makes us long for days spent sat on grass wearing vests instead of huddled in our flats wearing thick socks and secretly sneaking on the heating for a glorious half hour of warmth before someone notices and yells 'PUT A BLOODY JUMPER ON'.
But this Fleetwood Mac-esque piece of brilliance is keeping us warm today.
Cut Copy 'Take Me Over'
'Take Me Over' is apparently 'out now' but a quick look on iTunes reveals that this is not true. Hopefully we can put a little more faith in news that the third Cut Copy album, 'Zonoscope' will be released across Europe on 7 February and that the band will be showing up at the following places on the following dates to sing some songs et al.
Thurs 3 March - Glasgow - Death Disco Special
Sat March 6th – Manchester – Now Wave @ Gorilla
Sun 6 March – London - The Forum
Tues 8 March - Oslo - Rockerfeller
Wed 9 March - Malmo - KB
Thurs 10 March – Copenhagen - Loppen

Wed 16 March - Berlin - Lido
Thurs 17 March - Koln - Gebaeude 9
Fri 18 March – Amsterdam - Melkweg
Sat 19 March - Paris - Casino Nouveau

In other words, a European tour. Exciting? Yes.
