Review : Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours
AllmusicIn Ghost Colours announces itself, calmly but majestically, with a wash of hazy voices and fluttering keyboards giving way to crystal-clear acoustic strums, languid indie pop vocals, a sturdy dance-rock groove, pulsating electro-disco synths, swirling Caribou-style psychedelics, and an ethereal, vocoded chorus melody. Squeezing all of that into one song -- the effervescent "Feel the Love" -- is an ambitious move: in most hands it would come out sounding like a bewildering mess, or at least a hammy, hyperactive pastiche, but Cut Copy manage to keep it light, breezy, and utterly ebullient.

Oh yes yes, these Australians have properly arrived and it’s one hell of a leap forward from their previous post-Daft Punk/pre-rave renaissance debut Bright Like Neon Love....full text
PrefixmagThe Australian band's new album takes the best elements of the debut, tightens them up, mixes the tracks into each other, and, with a little help from producer Tim Goldsworthy of DFA, culminates in pure pop perfection. Keeping their trademark breezy, dreamy, swirly, '80s-inspired vibe, Cut Copy have packed In Ghost Colours with pop songs of the very best kind -- songs that make you feel, dance and dream....full text
