Music Video: Cut Copy, Free Your Mind
So, your latest single is a psychedelic, electronic synth scream – an absolute winner – and you require a suitably eye-catching video-clip to match. What do you do? Well, if you’re Australian electro kings Cut Copy, you recruit Alexander Skarsgård to play a shirtless cult leader. Yup, that should do it.
The True Blood star plays some invisible basketball (!) and generally looks swoonworthy and six-packy in the clip, which is soundtracked by the title-track from their upcoming fourth studio album. The LP will be released worldwide soon. It arrives on the 4th November in the UK and Europe and is now available for pre-order via iTunes; pre-order comes with an instant-grat download of the ‘Free Your Mind’ single (which sadly isn’t a cover of the En Vogue song). And for vinyl pre-order info, click here.
The Aussies are set to play a one-off show at London’s Oval Space on the 26th November. Alas, it’s already sold out, but they’re playing an extensive run of US tour dates before then. Full details here. Also, you can catch the band at Australia’s Golden Plains festival.
