The Cut Copy boys remix fellow Australians Jagwar Ma, stretching their latest single 'Uncertainty' into a jacking intergalactic sparkle. A winning combination. You could argue that both acts see eye to eye with 'Free Your Mind' and 'Howlin' finding common ground in their marriage of psychedelia and dance music, paying homage to the Madchester scene.
They're all about Freeing Your Mind, and now Cut Copy have set free another new and previously unreleased track. In These Arms Of Love is part of a Record Store Day vinyl release (US only), and is here for you to listen to today.

The following article is an excerpt from the first issue of our newspaper Modulations.

In October this year Helsinki duo Shine 2009 released their 2nd album and their first on Modular Recordings, 'Our Nation'. In November Cut Copy released their 4th record, 'Free Your Mind'. Cut Copy invited Shine 2009 to open for them on their European tour so it seemed like an opportune time to introduce the two groups before they spend three weeks on the road together. Glen Goetze from Modular connected Sami Suova of Shine 2009 with Dan Whitford of Cut Copy.

J. Spaceman of seminal British space rock band Spiritualized has lent his textured touch to Cut Copy's current single 'Free Your Mind'.
