Records: Cut Copy “Zonoscope”

When you are responsible for an album – 2008’s In Ghost Colours – that has become an indie-classic, with many of its songs seen now as celebratory anthems, how do you follow it up? If you are Cut Copy, then this is what you do: reduce the anthemic properties of your new tracks, take out almost all guitars and immerse the tunes in a myriad of 80’s synthesizers. And Zonoscope is exactly all about that: building ethereal dance atmospheres instead of physical numbers, while exploring different synthetic textures. But the final goal is still the same and almost as successfuly achieved as before: to create ecstactic music and aim higher into the sky. Or, in other words, to reach for the stars while dancing on the way. (7/10)
