Cut Copy Lives Up To Their Name By Copying Fleetwood Mac

Since the February 8th release date for Cut/Copy's latest album, Zonoscope, I have noticed a startling similarity between one of the album tracks, "Take Me Over" and Fleetwood Mac's "Everywhere". I believe that these types of things keep me up at night and is partially reason for me to start a music blog. For weeks this similarity bugged me enough that I will present the video evidence for you here on Temporary Rough Venom. Pay attention to the bass and rhythm sections and the sustained single note choruses.

Cut/Copy - "Take Me Over"

Fleetwood Mac - "Everywhere"

Do you think this is a good direction for Cut/Copy? Do you think they are trying to indoctrinate new music fans to Fleetwood Mac? Which song would you chose if your life was being threatened and you could only have ONE song to hear? Would you still be in a dancey mood if your life was threatened? Would hipsters admit to liking Fleetwood Mac? Should Cut/Copy and Stevie Nicks record a collab?

  1. kids are going the wrong route when they start ripping of good music thats made to sound mediocre.
    i can already hear the next wave of chill music stealing heavily from yacht rock and the truly shitty 70s & 80's radio hits that created such amazing musical artforms like hardcore and post-punk.
    fuck a steely dan in its face.
