It’s been a long time between drinks for the legendary Cut Copy, with the Aussie music icons returning today with “Love Is All We Share”, their first single since 2017.
Having first formed close to 20 years ago, Cut Copy have long been on the receiving end of praise from critics. With five albums to their name, and a couple of ARIA Awards for 2011’s Zonoscope, the group’s most recent record – Haiku from Zero – came back in 2017, with an album outtake titled “Ocean Blue” following soon after.
Since then, they’ve remained relatively busy, with March seeing the group score a high-profile support slot for New Order’s Melbourne performance.
Now, the acclaimed outfit are back with fresh music, officially sharing their latest single, “Love Is All We Share”, earlier today.
“‘Love Is All We Share’ is a song we made using only a handful of sounds, hoping to create an intimate and unworldly atmosphere,” explained Dan Whitford. “It was written a year ago about the anxieties of imagined future times, as technology becomes more all-consuming.
“But in light of recent events the song took on an eerie significance. Now, with our immediate future uncertain and people the world over self isolating, ‘love”’ more than ever, feels like one of the best things we can share.”
Though there’s currently no word as to what else Cut Copy have on the cards for the near future, “Love Is All We Share” serves as a powerful indicator of what they might have up their sleeves for the next stage of their career.
