Review of Rendevous EP Single by Cut Copy

News & Reviews
8.Cut Copy Rendevous EP (12" - Rex Records & Modular)
Its no surprise that Cut Copy are from the same stock as Aussie experimentalists, The Avalanches. The EPs opening rack, Live, is worryingly similar to The Avalanches A Different Feeling , Its got the disco sparkle; the uplifting piano; the heart warming synths. But, fortunately for them, the similarities end there.
Two further tracks take in completely different sounds; Rendevous is a little bit eighties Furniture and a little bit Depeche Mode, whilst, I Was Young And I Needed The Money, is a down-tempo hip-hop/jazz cross-over with a mean Red Snapper style bassline. Exciting stuff indeed.
