If a groundhog sees its shadow on February 2, that means we’re in for an extended winter season. But what if Cut Copy releases a new single in early September; does that mean summer goes on for a little longer? It certainly appears that way, as Cut Copy is back with a new single capable of turning the fall/winter seasons into a reminder of how amazing summer can be.
“Free Your Mind” represents the very best qualities of Cut Copy, who have a keen sense of how to make pop music without having it be reduced to the lowest common denominator. A soulful female vocal sample adds a touch of timelessness to the single, with an unapologetically optimistic beat forcing us to see the world in the ways Cut Copy does. If you aren’t going to free your mind, then Cut Copy will do it themselves.
Cut Copy’s fourth LP, Free Your Mind, is out 5 November via Modular.
