Top-seeded Cut Copy demolished Electric Wire Hustle in their opening round contest, 95% to 5%. “Need You Now” looks to continue the Australia vs. New Zealand dominance as it faces off against Shocking Pinks and “What’s Up With That Girl,” which took an impressive 72% score over Flume & Chet Faker in round 1.
Empire of the Sun upset fifth-ranked Sia in the first round, but it faces much stiffer competition now from Chet Faker. “Talk Is Cheap” scored 94% over Cloud Control, an Oceaniac victory margin second only to Cut Copy.
