After Cut Copy's first album, I Thought Of Numbers, Dan Whitford found himself more drawn to the radio-friendly tunesmithery of 70s rock titans such as ELO and Fleetwood Mac than any of his dance music contemporaries. Having found inspiration in the simplicity and lyricism of disco-era pop, he began writing a series of un-pretentious future-love ballads.

This collection of dream and love-laden tunes, pulled together with Dan’s inside-out knowledge of 80s flavoured synths and studio trickery, set the mood for writing the record.

That’s just the tip of the pop iceberg on this album. Repeated listening reveals an array of speckled, layered influences – from House to low-slung, fuzzed up punk garage, seminal 80s raincoat-wearing Mancunian electro-pop to Nouveau Disco – often within the one song.

It's an album that refuses to be pigeonholed. It’s overground, it’s underground. Pop and dance. Happy sad. Simple and yet complicated, sincere yet keep-your-distance-cool, slightly naïve but definitely clever. It’s like a soundtrack to a coming-of-age montage in a John Hughes film.
