Cut Copy – In Ghost Colours

Cut Copy – In Ghost Colours (03/2008)

Cut Copy took their time, but by the end of their promotional campaign for debut album, Bright Like Neon Love, they were firmly positioned as the `80s-flecked quasi-dance group it was cool to groove along to.

It certainly tired them out – they hit the highways of Australia hard and fast, then traversed the world, then came back and started all over again. The fatigue that such a schedule brings is something that they’re keen to avoid the second time around, and as such In Ghost Colours has a near universal release in all the key territories from Australia to Japan to America to Europe…and beyond!

“It all is [a promo thing],” says drummer Mitchell Scott, “but we’re playing live in a bunch of places – starting in Barcelona then to the UK and throughout Europe. These are all live shows – proper sets.”

It’s the band’s first opportunity to showcase the sounds of In Ghost Colours , and the first time that the Melbourne-based three-piece have had the chance to play new material, with a sizeable gap between releases strung out further by the staggered release of their debut.

“We’ve been teething at the bit to get this record out,” he confirms. “Some of these songs have been around for a while, and there’s a few that we’ve been playing in our live set, but as it gets closer to the release date we’ve been adding in more and more.”

The album itself was recorded in March, 2007, and Mitchell agrees that that is an extremely long gap between recording and its release some twelve months on. But, he explains, it’s been a staggered process. “We did pretty much the whole thing in March in New York,” he says. “We went to the DFA studios and worked with their producer, Tim Goldsworthy from DFA, and then there was additional mixing and a little bit of recording when we went to L.A., and then we worked up a little bit more of it back here in Melbourne when we got home.”

A long process, certainly, but it has enabled the band and their label – the über-hip Modular – to work out a worldwide strategy for its release. “We can finally see that it’s happening, and now we’re so flat out that we don’t have time to think about it anymore.”

Overseas for the five weeks prior to the album’s release, Cut Copy rush home to play as part of the V Festival, before disappearing back overseas for a further five or six weeks in order to promote the album.

Originally planned to be released in August of last year, it was the international arms of labels releasing the record who expressed their concern over In Ghost Colours having a staggered release. “They’re not too keen on that happening in different territories – everything leaks,” he shrugs. “And once it’s out there it’s going to effect their sales, and they’re an even bigger label again so they can’t move their plans forward, so the Australian label had to move it backwards to slot in with the UK and the States.

“One of the things that’s really held up this record was the amount of time between releases between this and our last record,” he confirms.

In some ways, the staggered release of Bright Like Neon Love worked in the band’s favour – they could concentrate on individual parts of the world one bit at a time, building and following up in each place with a slow and methodical plan. It’s certainly a vastly different approach than their current rush-rush-rush that they’ve found themselves embroiled in.

“It had those advantages,” he agrees, before countering that “the downside of it is the extra time that it adds on between the cycles between records. This time it’s going to be really cool to have things come out simultaneously and then the challenge is that our year is going to be crazy in terms of trying to cover off all those territories and do them properly without missing anywhere, particularly Australia.”

Cut Copy hope to be back in the country for their own national tour in June, following on from the V Festival performances. Their new album is available now.
