EDITORS’ NOTES

On their fifth studio album, dance-rock mainstays Cut Copy sound more than ever like a proper band, boldly fusing psychedelic textures (“Counting Down”), tropical rhythms (“Standing in the Middle of the Field”), and electro-funk grooves in the spirit of Daft Punk and Talking Heads (“Airborne”). In many ways, Haiku from Zero is a reflection of the era’s dizzying information overload and political paranoia. “Keep moving, no slowing down,” frontman Dan Whitford chants on “Living Upside Down,” a delirious cut about embracing uncertainty. “Do what you want until the rhythm runs out.”
