Cut Copy Keeps The Dance Party Going In The Rain At Air + Style THOUGHTS+PHOTOS: CUT COPY @ AIR + STYLE 3/3/18
LOS ANGELES, CA- Having released their fifth studio album (“Haiku From Zero”) late in 2017, the Australian indietronica band Cut Copy has been on a tear touring around the world to promote it. It’s a solid, if not predictable, effort that doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel or venture away from what’s made them popular with their fans: synth pop sensibilities with vintage disco sprinkles.
Their performance at Air + Style got the audience grooving instantly. By including their “classic” hits like “Lights & Music” and “Hearts On Fire” into their set, fans not too familiar with the band’s current repertoire weren’t alienated and could sing and dance along with the band with wild abandon.
Half way through Cut Copy’s performance a light drizzle almost instantly turned into a heavy downpour. As waves of raindrops pelted the pavement, soaking clothes and ruining manicured hair, bodies kept dancing as the band kept playing. The rain only lasted for a handful of minutes, but no one was going to let the temperamental elements shut Cut Copy’s dance party down.
