Cut Copy — “Need You Now”

by Liz Colville

Cut Copy has always been good: the Melbourne group’s second album in particular, 2008’s In Ghost Colours, is full of dizzying, sad, and smart electro-pop, but they’ve just outdone themselves with “Need You Now,” a soaring number with a long, LCD Soundsystem-like build-up, pretty melody, and memorable, sweet refrain. It’s deeply ’80s, and epic in the way this album’s cover is epic. The album, Zonoscope, comes out February 8 on Modular. [Via]
