Cut Copy

Cut Copy evolved from a home recording project to become one of the biggest bands in Australia and even further afield.

The group was formed in 2001 by Melbourne based DJ & Graphic Designer Dan Whitford who developed a love of dance music during his time at university. After purchasing a keyboard and sampler, Dan began experimenting with music, combining his love of more lo-fi sounds with dance influence creating something highly unique in the process. A home recorded demo tape landed him a deal with Australian label powerhouse ‘Modular Recordings’ setting on the name ‘Cut/Copy’ after a flash of computer based inspiration.

The band began to form as Dan added members and released a number of singles and the EP ‘I Thought of Numbers’ which was heavily remixed, further building the bands profile. The band’s first gig was in 2003 to the unusually large crowd of 5000 at livid festival which was unsurprisingly terrifying for the band.

The band’s first album ‘Bright Like Neon Love’ came in 2004 and spurred the band on as they began to tour internationally supporting acts like Bloc Party and Franz Ferdinand. The freshly toured unit hit the studio with Tim Goldsworthy to record album number two, ‘In Ghost Colours’ which went straight in at number one in the charts when it was released in 2008.

The band released two more albums in the following years, ‘Zonoscope’ and ‘Free Your Mind’ and continued to play increasingly large shows and reach new crowds worldwide with their music being featured on TV and in Video games.
