Cut Copy is an Australian dance-pop band featuring Dan Whitford (vocals, guitar, keyboard), Tim Hoey (guitar, sampler), Mitchell Scott (drums), and Ben Browning (bass). Whitford formed Cut Copy originally as a solo project in 2001, but Hoey and Scott joined him in 2003 to create a full band. They released their first full-length album, Bright Like Neon Light (Modular), in 2004. Their sophomore album, In Ghost Colours (Modular, 2008), debuted at number one in Australia and was certified gold. The band embarked on a heavy tour in support of In Ghost Colours, including headlining Lollapalooza and being the first Australian band to play Colombia since INXS. Zonoscope, their third album, was released on February 8, 2011 on Modular and was nominated for a Grammy in 2012 for Best Dance/Electronic. In addition, Zonoscope won an ARIA Award in Australia for Best Dance Release and was nominated for Album of the Year.
