Version 19

Cut Copy is a synthpop band from Melbourne, Australia made up of Dan Whitford (lead vocals/keys/guitar), Tim Hoey (bass/guitar) and Mitchell Scott (drums), Bennett Foddy being a former member.

Their sound is much in the vein of contemporaries such as Daft Punk, drawing considerable influence from older bands such as New Order, Electric Light Orchestra and Kraftwerk.

It began in 2001 as the project for Dan Whitford, however in 2003 Whitford recruited a band, and in 2005 toured internationally for the first time, visiting London, New York and Los Angeles. They have played with international acts Franz Ferdinand, TV on the Radio, Pretty Girls Make Graves and Junior Senior, amongst others. Cut Copy is signed to the record label Modular in Sydney.

In 2004 Cut Copy released their debut LP Bright Like Neon Love. The music is written and produced by frontman Dan Whitford, who is also a graphic designer and DJ.

They also released a Fabriclive album featuring a mix of several synth/retro/elektropop songs such as (for example) MSTRKRFT and NY Pony Club

Their second LP, In Ghost Colours, was released in 2008. The first single to come off this album is “Lights and Music”.
