Not that this is, you know, new news, but it’s double official now. New Order is no more. For me, New Order died when Gillian Gilbert quit the band right before the release of Get Ready. Just wasn’t the same without that woman’s touch.
Luckily, Cut Copy have picked up the ball and are running with it. The Australian group’s new single, "Hearts on Fire," could’ve been something from 1989’s Ibiza-crazy Technique, arguably New Order’s best album. (Low-Life is kinda hard to top, though.) The Peter Hook bass at the end is the clincher. I love it.
