Editors’ Notes

As the world got to know Australian dance-rock, The Presets sealed their reputation internationally with this giddy, electro-leaning second album. Julian Hamilton’s Gary Numan-esque vocals sit high and snide in the mix, holding forth over the pulsing hothouse atmosphere, while standouts such as “Talk Like That” are guaranteed to animate anyone in earshot.

Perfection

This band just keeps getting better. If you like ... music, then you'll love this.
