Catchy music comes and goes, but truly well orchestrated music is more difficult to come by. Every once and a while the two intersect and what gets revealed is on another level. Australia’s Cut Copy has the ability to intertwine the two. On their new single “Like Breaking Glass” from their upcoming full length Freeze, Melt coming in a couple of weeks they show exactly how to do so.
The opening synth and beats create a cluster of tones that draw your attention before a hypnotic synth creates the hook. When the vocals start things are a mixture of easy going and catchy. However the instrumentation here is where the sorcery lies. Heavily arranged and well placed notes dance about and almost create their own universe as the beat almost makes you get up and start getting down.
The single can be heard above or on all streaming platforms. Freeze, Melt can be presaved or preordered from all digital outlets. It can also be preordered physically from Cutters Records/The Orchard ahead of its August 21 release. Cut Copy is scheduled to begin touring beginning March 23, 2021 at Hard Club in Porto, Portugal until April 02 at Whelan’s in Dublin, Ireland. Their complete tour schedule can be accessed here.
