Having seen Cut Copy earlier this year at the Governors Ball Festival, I decided they were the best act there. Well, they’re two for two now, having just outdone that performance with a gig for the NPR Music and KCRW Metropolis launch event at the intimate (le) Poisson Rouge, an exceedingly small space for the band. Metropolis DJ Jason Bentley opened the show and we have pictures from the first two songs, so you may not get the full feel of blasting lights and the dance-happy music but it’s a start. The band are celebrating the release of their album Free Your Mind which expands their already intense electro-dance-rock oeuvre with such hits as “Footsteps”, the title track and “We are Explorers”. They just performed that last song on Fallon, and there is a clip below for you to watch, a better way to see what they are up to. If you didn’t live stream the seventy minute performance the first go around, check NPR as they will probably share the video soon.
