Three years later Haiku From Zero, Melbourne-based band Cut Copy (led by Dan Whitford) announced the release of a new album. Freeze, Melt is out on August 21st via Cutters Records/The Orchard. We already shared “Love Is All We Share”; “Cold Water” is a new excerpt and comes with the official video.
Dan Whitford on the track: “After extensive touring on our last album, “Cold Water” was one of the first new songs to appear. I’d moved to Copenhagen and had been listening to a lot more ambient and instrumental electronic music and as a result “Cold Water” felt quite different to songs we’d made in the past. It was less dance, but more atmospheric. Also the subject matter explores love in today’s context, where the climate and fate of the planet are becoming increasingly uncertain. Once we’d finished it, it felt like we’d placed a marker in the ground, guiding us in a new musical direction.”
The accompanying music video was made by American contemporary artist, Takeshi Murata, who sheds light imagery, saying it’s, “An open window and the midnight sun-lit ocean: These suggest a shifting in the calm. A late-night anxiety and hypnotizing tension between states of consciousness and dream.”
