Cut Copy used to be one man, Melbourne's Dan Whitford, until his sampler blew up in 2002. As a result Whitford recruited a band to record this debut album, and his synth-pop, once rather bloodless, became more visceral with the addition of guitar and drums. He then drew up a wish list of seminal 1980s producers to work with but found them either dead, disillusioned or expensive.
