EDITORS’ NOTES

How obsessed were Cut Copy with soaring '80s synth-pop? Put it this way: the sax solo on “Hearts on Fire” might as well be pulled from an ABC radio hit. Vocalist Dan Whitford, a former DJ, nails the detached bon vivant persona, singing of the pleasures and perils of nightlife as swirling synths prop up the band's epic hooks. "Lights & Music" is a kaleidoscopic banger—it builds to a euphoric crescendo designed to blow up the dance floor.
