The last we heard from Aussie dance-rockers Cut Copy, they were taking on Madchester sounds with their 2014 album Free Your Mind. You can't keep a good indie-dance combo down, though, and thus the group has returned with a new single (no album announcement yet).

"Airborne" percolates with baubles of percussion, Nile Rodgers-esque disco guitars, and vocal samples all buffed to a sheen. It is classy as shit, and it's definitely a "match your steps to the tempo of the song as you walk down the street" kind of jam. Get your sunglasses and dancing shoes on and stream "Airborne" below.
