With three landmark albums in the last ten years, 2014 sees The Presets refine and focus on singles.
Releasing two singles this year including 'Goodbye Future', their latest single ‘No Fun’ sets The Presets on a nihilist path to techno decadence. Full of irreverent energy, squelching synth-bass, towering melody, and a crushing breakdown, ‘No Fun’ is a joyous and frightening offering.
Clocking up to fifteen singles in the bands history, The Presets are best known for classics such as 'This Boy’s In Love', 'Are You The One?', 'Fall' and the towering, cage rattlling, bonafide anthem of 'My People', whose subject matter on the treatment of asylum seekers is as relevant today as it was when the song was first released in 2007.
Once described as the “music at the crossroads between Heaven and Hell” The Presets are infamous for their massive, blazing live show. The live set boils the essence of The Presets’ studio material into a monster set of beats, synths, and an extra-sensory cavalcade of a light show. It’s taken them all over the globe to festivals such as Coachella, Melt, Splendour in the Grass and Glastonbury plus countless international and domestic tours of their own.
Multi award winners, with everything from ARIAs, APRAs, Smacs, GQs and Triple J’s - The Presets continue to push to the future. In a world first, the latest single ‘No Fun’ comes with a six-sided, interactive music video, allowing you to twist, turn and manipulate your own unique audiovisual experience in real time. They've also put their hand to scoring music for Melbourne based dance company Chunky Move, and earlier this year they toured extensively for “Timeline”, a piece they created in collaboration with the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
The Presets are currently in the studio creating album number four.
