CUT COPY SHARE NEW SINGLE “BLACK RAINBOWS” LISTEN HERE
LIFTED FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM HAIKU FROM ZERO OUT SEPTEMBER 22 VIA EMI MUSIC
Following on from “Airborne” and most recent cut “Standing In The Middle of the Field”, Cut Copy unveil their third single “Black Rainbows” – lifted from their highly anticipated forthcoming album Haiku From Zero, out September 22 via EMI Music/Astralwerks.
“Black Rainbows” is one of the most infectious tracks off the album. The band flaunt their signature combination of funky instrumentation, divine guitar licks and creative lyrics, giving the listener an earful of blissful electronica.
“Black Rainbows” is lifted from their long-awaited fifth album, Haiku From Zero, Cut Copy’s first proper studio album in nearly four years and first for EMI/Astralwerks. NPR Music are offering fans an exclusive first listen to Haiku From Zero, in the week leading up to its September 22 release. Written and recorded at studios around the world (Melbourne, Copenhagen, Washington, DC, New York, Atlanta), the nine tracks on Haiku From Zero nonetheless present a united sonic front, due in no small part to the guiding ear of producer Ben Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Neon Indian).
Earlier this week, Cut Copy shared a remix of “Standing in the Middle of the Field” by Melbourne’s Ara Koufax. “Standing In the Middle of the Field” was praised by Pitchfork as “a spirited bop with some sly pensive tension at its core… With it, Cut Copy reassert their ability to turn even moody introspection into floor-filler bliss”. Meanwhile their July-released single “Airborne” was hailed by Stereogum as “’a disco-pop odyssey that sounds like, well, soaring through the sky, before eventually blasting off into psychedelic bliss”, and received nods from Noisey and Paste Magazine for its “wildly imaginative”accompanying video directed by Gerson Aguerri (The Vaccines, Breakbot) of Barcelona-based company CANADA.
Celebrating the release of Haiku From Zero, Cut Copy will embark on a 17 date North American headline tour, kicking off on November 9 in Santa Cruz & heading all the way to Terminal 5 in NY. After their run across the States, the band will return home to play Lost Paradise Festival and Beyond The Vally over the New Years Eve period.
“Black Rainbows” is the third single from the forthcoming Haiku From Zero. With just one week from its September 22 release, we can’t wait to hear “Black Rainbows” together with “Airborne”, “Standing In The Middle of the Field” and six unheard tracks.
