ITM's Cut Copy Australian exclusive! 'Hearts on Fire' video clip
Wed 21st May, 2008 Newsin
The past few months have been something of a blur for celebrated Melbourne indie-dance kids Cut Copy. Showered with critical acclaim following the release of their long awaited sophomore album In Ghost Colours, the band also had their first taste of mainstream success when the LP shot straight to #1 on the ARIA Charts. Since finishing up the V Festival national tour in early April they’ve been busy trotting the globe, playing across North America and Europe, including the mighty Coachella festival in California.
Set to return to Australia in June for their biggest headline tour to date, the band passed on the hot new clip for their upcoming single Hearts on Fire, which has been given a 2008 update for its re-release this year. A radio hit with Triple J in 2007, Hearts on Fire was listed as their most played song of the year, and the sax-infused dancefloor epic has been a high point of their current live show.
For the clip Cut Copy worked closely with acclaimed Japanese pop-artist Nagi Noda, with the band setting out to create a video that would encompass the personality of the track by conceiving an artwork within an artwork. Recorded in Japan, the outcome is indeed something special, and it’s a credit to Nagi Noda’s art, as well as Cut Copy frontman Dan Whitford’s acting skills. inthemix is pleased as punch to bring you the clip first in an Australian online exclusive!
