Cut Copy return today with their ambient new single and video, “Love Is All We Share.” The first track in almost three years breathes a universal truth, released to the world at a time where our longing for love in solitude has never been more relevant.
As one of Australia’s most successful exports, with a career spanning nineteen years, five acclaimed albums and countless anthems, Cut Copy’s anticipated return forgoes the danceability factor to deliver a timely reminder of our common need for connection in isolation.
The atmospheric release rides the intensity and transcendence of our yearning for love, with Dan Whitford delivering haunting lines like “can you feel it in your bones, can you feel it in your fingers,” tapping into the physicality of the complex set of emotions.
The purposeful lyrics are layered with intelligent production, playing out an intense build of staggering piano vamps and billowing synths, to mimic the euphoric highs of love and our limitless desire for more.
Dan Whitford on the new track: “Love Is All We Share” is a song we made using only a handful of sounds, hoping to create an intimate and unworldly atmosphere. It was written a year ago about the anxieties of imagined future times, as technology becomes more all-consuming. But in light of recent events the song took on an eerie significance. Now, with our immediate future uncertain and people the world over self isolating, “love” more than ever, feels like one of the best things we can share.”
