Cut Copy are electro pioneers, and they want their music to colonize the party by being as sick as a communicable disease. “We Are Explorers” navigates its musically amourous motherboard on the back of some very simple lyrical sentiments: reach up for the sky, something something morning light, your dancing sweat is my dancing sweat, etc. But it's focused in its widescreen projection of the sounds that used to dominate warehouses when the sun went down, so it never feels condescending. The Australian band have mastered how to make their music glow like a disco ball going supernova. It'll be interesting to see how their new record Free Your Mind takes us on a journey to the centre of their sound.
