There's a new Cut Copy album on the way. It's titled Zonoscope, and Cut Copy spent 6 months in a warehouse in Melbourne, Australia recording it. The Skies of The Ape video documentary above shows what life was like in that warehouse, which looks pretty nice on the inside. Hopefully nice recording digs make for a good album. It's all about the vibe, right?
Zonoscope is due out on February 4 in Australia, February 7 in the UK and Europe, and February 8 in North America. It was mixed in Atlanta by Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter).
"We certainly are using all sorts of electronic instruments, more synthesizers, computers, all of that, but contrasted with more organic sounds, more organic percussion," Tim Hoey told SPIN.
"There was no Internet in there, barely any heat, nothing, just fucking industrial Melbourne," he says. "We just knew we could kind of go into there and not feel pressured. We were just kind of locked in there by ourselves, and we couldn't have had it sounding how it sounds without us going in there."
