About this item
'Haiku From Zero is the fifth album from Grammy nominated electronic band Cut Copy and their first on seminal dance label Astralwerks. The Australian band recorded the album with Deerhunter and Animal Collective producer Ben Allen. Cut Copy have announced details of ‘Haiku From Zero’, their first studio album in four years. Written and recorded at studios around the world (Melbourne, Copenhagen, Washington, DC, New York, Atlanta), the nine tracks on ‘Haiku From Zero’ nonetheless present a united sonic front, due in no small part to the guiding ear of producer Ben Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Neon Indian). Songs like “Counting Down” and “Living Upside Down” offer glimpses of beauty in a state of disco-fueled flux.
Part of that inspired wave of Australian indie-electro-pop, alongside Empire Of The Sun; Cut Copy have been Piccadilly favourites from day one. This new album sees them in comfortable stride, encompassing modern tastes in both instrumentation and rhythm wonderfully. You can imagine every track finding a place in the modern world we live in, something the band always seem to capture - the soundtrack to our life through a serious of electric melodies and heartfelt vocals. They've not lost the pizzazz or shimmer, but "Haiku From Zero" sees them broaden their horizons into adventurous new territories and will keep the diehard fans reassuringly on their toes.
