Cut Copy’s official video for “Airborne,” which was released today. Director Gerson Aguerri (The Vaccines, Breakbot) of the Barcelona-based production company CANADA weaves a tale that begins with a mysterious light shooting across the sky, unbeknownst to Cut Copy lead vocalist Dan Whitford, who is composing a new song on his keyboard. Whitford’s quest for a late-night snack turns cosmic as he hits the city streets. View “Airborne”.
“Airborne” – Cut Copy’s first official single in four years – gives fans an early glimpse of the new material the GRAMMY-nominated Australian band has been recording in studios around the world. The song was produced by Ben Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective) and marks Cut Copy’s first release on Astralwerks.
Dan Whitford says, “The video for our song ‘Airborne’ is probably the most interesting and most challenging that I’ve ever been involved in. It was shot in Barcelona, all through the night for three days running and culminated with a final scene with me having not slept for 24 hours and playing a piano on the back of a moving truck. To say it was a once in a lifetime experience is no understatement! Despite the sleep deprivation, Gerson and his team at CANADA did a fantastic job bringing this surreal story to life.”
The band recently announced two additional U.S. headline dates – October 3 at Tricky Falls in El Paso, TX and October 4 at The Jones Assembly in Oklahoma City, OK. Cut Copy will also perform at North American festivals this fall, including Luna Lights, CRSSD and Austin City Limits. The band’s summer Australian tour will wrap up with an appearance at the Splendour in the Grass Festival tomorrow.
Initially a bedroom recording project by frontman Dan Whitford, Cut Copy evolved into a full-fledged band with guitarist Tim Hoey, drummer Mitchell Scott, and bass player Ben Browning. The quartet’s albums include 2011’s Zonoscope, and 2013’s Free Your Mind.
