Cut Copy x “Standing in the Middle of the Field”

“On ‘Standing in the Middle of the Field,’ the quartet’s vibrant synthesizer antics are at their most fine-tuned…a spirited bop with some sly pensive tension at its core…” – Pitchfork 

“Cut Copy masterfully blends electronic music with indie rock music” – Dancing Astronaut

Cut Copy has just released the official video for”Standing in the Middle of the Field”, the latest single off their album Haiku from Zero. The uplifting visual was directed by filmmaker/new media artist Vincenzi Vandella, who was born in Russia but is now based in Australia. “Vincent is an old friend of the band,” says Dan Whitford, the lead singer of Cut Copy. “He came to us earlier this year because he’d been experimenting with a strange visual effect having a camera rise upward through various difference scenes and landscapes, almost like delving through a collection of memories. He suggested this experiment might work well when put to our music.”

“The initial concept was to create a video that was uplifting, in a literal sense,” Vandella explains, “We wanted the camera to rise up through various different scenes, telling the story of a couple in one long continuous shot.”

“Standing in the Middle of the Field” has been remixed by Australian duo Ara Koufax and  acclaimed Munich-based DJ/producer Ferdinand Weber. The remixes can be listen to HERE.

Haiku From Zero – Cut Copy’s first proper studio album in nearly four years and first for Astralwerks – was produced by Ben Allen. It is the follow-up to 2013’s Free Your Mind. The album is available for download as well as via a new experimental website designed by Björn Flóki Björnsson. Check out the website HERE.

In addition to headlining massive sold-out shows, the band has gained prime slots at prestigious festivals such as Coachella, Ultra and Lollapalooza in the U.S.; Primavera in Spain, Pitchfork in Paris; Summer Sonic in Japan; and Big Day Out in Australia.
