Cut Copy - Blink and You'll Miss A Revolution

Aussie party starters, Cut Copy, are still riding high following the release of their album, Zonoscope. The group is readying another single, Blink and You'll Miss A Revolution, for digital release August 9th (with a 12" physical copy to follow soon thereafter).

Furthermore, Toro y Moi has lent his mellow hand to a remix of the jam, that will accompany the release. Good stuff.

Cut Copy has a number of tour dates through the remainder of 2011. They'll be performing at Pacific Festival in Orange County, 8/13... which is the closest stop to LA that has been announced.

Stream both cuts below.
