Cut Copy have returned with their new single/video, “Love Is All We Share.” The first track in almost three years from the Melbourne Australia outfit. Cut Copy Initially started the bedroom recording project of Dan Whitford, it has evolved into a full-fledged band with guitarist Tim Hoey, drummer Mitchell Scott, and bass player Ben Browning.
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.”
Directed by American contemporary artist Takeshi Murata, the accompanying video communicates the track’s themes through his work in hyper-realism and computer-simulated imagery, creating an entrancing space of interconnected digital sculptures. Murata says on the video: “Of the ideas we had, the floating bubbles stood out – representing elements of the song best with animation that’s meditative. For me, the bubbles point to our relationships and their fragility, relevant to the lyrics and time.”
