Cut Copy are hard at work on the follow-up to Zonoscope and to hold you over until then, bassist Ben Browning has just released his 1st solo EP, Lover Motion, on the band’s own Cutters Records. To celebrate its release, Browning is taking time out to head to America with Gus Franklin behind the drum kit and a special secret guest rounding out the trio, to play a handful of select dates. The EP is available on iTunes everywhere. It is also out on vinyl and CD at all fine shops and online outlets.
Most of the basic tracks were home spun, and afterwards the talents of Gus Franklin and Haima Marriott (Architecture in Helsinki) were enlisted to add production and shimmer to the finished product. The pair re-effected and mixed the recordings, with Franklin and Lachlan Dickie (one half of film directing duo Krozm) also providing live-drums to some of the original tracks. Meanwhile, Cut Copy's own Dan Whitford reached into his collection of vintage synths to provide keyboard programming, producing some of the classic keyboard tones that lie herein.
