The Presets - “Promises” If this isn’t your anthem, I don’t want to be your friend.
If you had enough time, space, and money to watch a couple dozen TVs at once, it would almost be enough to recreate the sensation of watching The Presets' new video for "Promises". Helmed by New Zealand directorial duo Special Problems, the piece combines live footage and CGI animation, with each shot part of an individual micro-film: there's the one about the girl and her beloved fan, the crazy person in elevator, the 24th century fashion show, and a surprisingly sensual nature documentary. Though the entire effort feels overwhelming visually, it makes for one moving, larger film held [...]

If you missed electro lords The Presets a few months back on the national Parklife Festival, fret not... the duo have announced a string of shows! The short and swift tour will follow on from the recent release of their third studio album 'Pacifica' and probably be scattered with everyone's hits from older records (can anyone say "Are You The One"?).

If you've been a reader of the blog, you know that in the past, I was a huge fan of The Presets. Unfortunately their latest album Pacifica, did not provoke anything in me but flatulence. In the past remixes where able to turn a mediocre albums into an extraordinary club play, and it seems to me that this the exact situation happening to Pacifica. A few days back I received the remix of their track Promises by Australia's Plastic Plates who gave the track a facelift and made it suitable for the masses. [...]
Posting a great track from a the newest album The Presets released back in September called Pacifica. I've yet to fully listen to this album, I will have to do so now! I miss Australian electro, and I definitely find that The Presets is one of the duos that help define that genre of music. I love how clean Promises is, and like it just as much as the remixes. The Lifelike remix adds a nice baseline to the track, a small touch that gives it a bit more of [...]
