Melbourne synth pop quartet, Cut Copy share their new single, ‘Cold Water’. Taken from the four-piece’s sixth studio album – ‘Freeze, Melt’, dropping on 21st August via The Orchard.
Dan Whitford on the track: “After extensive touring on our last album, ‘Cold Water’ was one of the first new songs to appear. I’d moved to Copenhagen and had been listening to a lot more ambient and instrumental electronic music and as a result ‘Cold Water’ felt quite different to songs we’d made in the past. It was less dance, but more atmospheric. Also the subject matter explores love in today’s context, where the climate and fate of the planet are becoming increasingly uncertain. Once we’d finished it, it felt like we’d placed a marker in the ground, guiding us in a new musical direction.”
The track starts slow with hypnotic looped synths. A single voice picks up the melody. The guys add different elements and subtle changes allowing this track to grow naturally. The track demands you to pay attention, to notice the voices of each instrument and the counter melodies. Couple of spins and it will easily be on your favourites list.
