Released in 2008 on Modular Records.
Cut Copy is an indie rock / electronic trio from Melbourne, Australia. They were originally a solo project that started in 2001. This their 2nd album.
Best album of 2008 ? That's what some people say.
In Ghost Colours is a pretty good album. It has fair sized handful of really good, club friendly tracks on it. Lots of synth, thumping' beats, snaky bass lines, infectious grooves. All the songs on here have really good production and sound very slick. There is a prevalent "new wave" sound throughout most of this album, in a good way. The more dance orientated tracks on here are catchy and highly enjoyable.
However, the album does have some more indie rock orientated songs as well. While not being bad, they are far from being anywhere near "the best of 2008" material, in my opinion. To me, songs like "Unforgettable Season" and "So Haunted" seem to be just some so-so filler and are forgettable. But even in these instances, the songs still maintain the shimmering production values as the rest of the album.
Far from a bad album, it's actually really good for as far as this radio friendly, polished indie dance stuff goes. Songs are lush and layered. Lots of catchy songs. Very colourful and vivid. Songs blend well together throughout the album. For sure a Top 10 of 2008, but not the very top.
