NY PRESS: Every time you come back to the U.S., the venues seem a bit bigger. The shows at Terminal 5 sold out quickly. What’s it like to see that progression?
Cut Copy: We’ve always found American audiences to be receptive. When we began, we were opening for people and it seemed when we started headlining all those people came back and brought their friends. It happened organically, as it should. It’s not like we had a lot of press or hype behind that first record. It felt quite grassroots. We’ve found throughout the world we have such a loyal fan base. I never thought we would connect with an American audience. I’m not sure how it happened but it’s amazing.
No dancey bands should have scheduled shows in NYC on Saturday, if for no other reason than they were probabably upset that they made it all the way to NYC on April 2nd, but couldn’t go see LCD Soundsystem at Madison Square Garden, because they had to work. Daedelus and company played a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg that night, and Cut Copy and the DFA-signed Holy Ghost! played their second sold out show in a row that evening at Terminal 5. The other Cut Copy show was one night earlier, and Cut Copy will play the large NYC venue again, but with opener Midnight Magic, on Wednesday (also sold out).
