i’ve featured both cut copy and hercules and love affair previously and praised both for their outstanding records this year, so when i heard the latter’s remix of the former’s “far away”, i just couldn’t resist squeezing in another post on them. “far away”, being the song that follows the sublime “hearts on fire”, seemed almost destined to live under its shadow, but the light and bouncy touch of its intro must have been too tempting for andy butler, and not to mention too easy as well. there’s nothing unpredictable about the mix, with bongos added to the beat and that bassline we all know so well running through the song, though i’m sure not many fans would complain.
mp3: cut copy – far away
the far away ep will be released on modular next week. look out for it!
