Australian-based group, The Presets, first burst onto the scene back in 2005 with their incredible debut album, Beams, a varied mix of cold vocals and skittish, grinding beats that garnered plenty of critical success. Well now they’re back, and dare I say…better than ever. At least, that’s what I’m thinking after hearing their latest single, “This Boy’s In Love”, to be released later this month.
First off, the accompany video is all shades of homoerotic, mainly consisting of two men wrestling in milk, while glitter falls all around the screen. Sounds a lot like my Saturday nights. But as for the song itself, there’s much brilliance to be found. The sound is something more nostalgic and structured than their other releases, bringing Depeche Mode to mind. By the time the ghostly chorus kicks in, you’ll be right on board too. The single comes at the same time of their second album’s release Apocalypso on April 12, so give the song a shot and then research them madly.
Check out the video to their first single from Apocalypso, the increasingly addictive “My People”.
