A Cut above

AUSTRALIAN electroclash trio Cut Copy's second LP In Ghost Colours is, if you'll excuse the pun, a spirited affair.
The indie dance acts' album begins with a derivitive half-Bob Sinclar, half-Phil Oakey hybrid of a track called Feel The Love, which lacks substance and fails to set the right tone for what is actually an inventive and entertaining opus.
Luckily it's not long before the group get their guitars out, and In Ghost Colours steps up a gear.
There's more Blue Monday-style indie-influenced fare here for existing fans, as there was in their debut Bright Like Neon Love, but the group now flex their electronica muscles more, such as in tracks like Hearts On Fire.
On this showing, Cut Copy definately deserve to be pasted across both charts and dancefloors.
