Time and time again, Australia delivers some of the best music in the world. One of their most successful exports, electronic group Cut Copy, is making their highly anticipated return with the release of their first new music in three years, with a gorgeous track and video to boot titled “Love Is All We Share” out now via Cutters Records/ The Orchard.
The prolific Aussie group has put out some of the most danceable timeless hits throughout their catalog, but this latest track takes on a mellow vibe to convey a much more applicable message and feeling to the times. Choirs of drawn out synths flow alongside angelic chimes and building pianos while singer vocalist Dan Whitford delicately sings, “Can you feel it in your bones, can you feel it in your fingers,” referring the every humans innate need for love. Speaking on the new track, Whitford says:
“’Love Is All We Share’ is a song we made using only a handful of sounds, hoping to create an intimate and unworldly atmosphere. 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.”
The fantastical accompanying video was directed by American contemporary artist, Takeshi Murata. Murata had this to say on his inspiration:
“Of the ideas we had, the floating bubbles stood out – representing elements of the song best with animation that’s meditative. For me, the bubbles point to our relationships and their fragility, relevant to the lyrics and time.”
In a time when music is becoming an increasingly needed commodity, Cut Copy delivered with an intelligent and graceful new sound. With a message exceedingly relevant to the times, “Love Is All We Share,” is the perfect track to help us push the reset button and enter the weekend with an air of kindness. Stream and watch below the new tune below. Enjoy!
