The Presets

The Presets are a pair of avant-garde Aussies who, while forging a musical path that wouldn't be unfamiliar to acts like Daft Punk, Nine Inch Nails, and the Faint, don't mind dragging disco along for the ride. Julian Hamilton (production, keyboards, vocals) and Kimberley Moyes (production, drums, programming) met in the early '90s as students at Sydney's Conservatorium of Music. Both were there to study classical music, but as they delved into the great composers, neither could forget an extracurricular love of '80s pop: the Smiths, Pet Shop Boys, Björk, New Order. So instead of abandoning their passion for music's lighter side, they bonded over it, composing music at school by day and dancing to acid house by night. Eventually, they joined the band Prop together, cranking out several albums of experimental instrumental music that won them critical plaudits across Australia. The Presets were born as an offshoot of Prop -- when Hamilton and Moyes wanted to remix a track with harder electronic edges, they did so under the Presets moniker.

In 2003, with a distinctively spiky disco-dipped sound and several years of collaboration boosting them, they released a demo; the influential Aussie label Modular wasted no time adding the Presets to its roster. A first EP, the relatively hard-driving Blowup, featuring guitar work from Silverchair's Daniel Johns, arrived the same year as the duo first hit the Australian stage circuit. In 2004, the mellower Girl and the Sea, whose title track was featured on the TV show The O.C., was released, and 2005's Down Down Down, the disc that established the Presets as a band worthy of Euro buzz, followed. With momentum on their side, the Presets also released Beams in Australia in 2005; in April of 2006, a month after it found favor with electro-freak-loving British fans, Beams lit a path into U.S. record stores. The pair returned in 2008 with a darker, more refined sound on its follow-up, Apocalypso, which would go on to become the first dance album to win the ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) Award for Album of the Year. Their third album, Pacifica, arrived in the summer of 2012. ~ Tammy La Gorce, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lover's name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works
something not right about this one..
my penis is small
Screw you guys, this is like new 80s music with a slightly twisted spin. Too bad Pacifica didn't use the same audio pallette.
it's a three minute song fucktard. but yeah the song sucks

Good track, much of their other cuts are on the weak side though.

It's like watered down ANT MUSIC ...but not as FAB n ANTY.. You need Adam, Marco, and Kevin to really get there...but I enjoyed it a lot!
Listen to KINGS OF THE WILD FRONTIER and you will hear it loud and clear!!!
TOTAL AWESOMEAGE!! I AM GLAMOUR PUNKING ALA 1980. BITCHEN TUNE.
I like them too. I bet they are big early 90's industrial fans. I hear a lot of Front 242 and Ministry in their sound. In a good way I mean. early Lords of Acid too now that I have heard Kicking and Screaming... . .
I want The Presets to come out with new music! They are so awesome and talented and the hype they deliver in their music is incredible!! I am a big, big fan of them. :)
Thanks for such sweet sonic medicine...
You guys are grrrrrrrrrre a t ! Infectious, I might even be so bold as to say...
ready for the second wave.
Love!
jen is dancin to this one right now, where r the souls for this scene? we will find our venue soon for known and unknown territories!

Amazing. Pandora is the bomb:)
there are hardly any acts that come close to the beauty and musical stylings of the presets. the originality in each track makes them stand out from other so called musicians. god damn i love the presets
Most under rated act in the world.... I expect a break out in the US.... Said it first here
tlali07
one of my fav...
rosettereeve s
The suggested "similar artists" don't do them justice - these guys have so much musical flair and originality. They're Australia's Daft Punk. GO PRESETS!!! (btw - i want your babies, K.I.M.)
Love these guys! >.<
all im gona say is that i am so happy i spent a summer in australia... i heard my people on the radio, then i went and bought a cd... now all my friends are huge presets fans
A New Sky: Brilliant
no way. Presets, THEN Cut Copy
Cut Copy is how I discovered Presets. It's Cut Copy then the Presets in my book.
listen to this band. cut copy is really good too. check out future islands on myspace. not as big yet but right in the same niche.
YAAHH!!!! THE PRESETS!!!!
Awesome and loving it!!!
LOVE The Presets, highly infectious music! Its great for long car rides, Apocalypso has no song I dont like, and Beams only has a few that I havent started diggin yet!
