Aussie electro legends The Presets have revealed they will released their star-studded fourth studio album HI VIZ later this year, and they’ve just dropped a new track from it.
Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes’ first Presets album since 2012’s Pacifica has already unveiled its lead single ‘Do What You Want’, and now the pair have unleashed the massive four-on-the-floor rhythms of ’14U+14ME’, complete with a mind-bending music video from New York production company Georgia.
While HI VIZ doesn’t have an exact release date just yet, we’ve been told to expect collaborations with the likes of Alison Wonderland, DMA’s, Touch Sensitive, DZ Deathrays’ Shane Parsons and Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears.
Hamilton calls the album “an acid-soaked circle jerk of rave nuggets, cyber croons and pub techno”, which sounds about right.
Late last year, Hamilton’s bandmate Moyes spoke with Music Feeds contributor Cyclone Wehner about the pair’s “Kramer”-like return to the airwaves, as well as the “new tricks” they’ve got hiding up their sleeves.

The Presets have pushed their album release date back to 1st June to give them more time to finalise the video for their next single ‘Downtown Shutdown’.
“It’s a labor of love, and it has taken longer than we had hoped,” they wrote on Instagram.
“Because we want you to feel the full force of the song with the visual alongside the record, we’ve decided to push HI VIZ to the new release date of June 1.”
We have some HI VIZ album-related news – we’re currently putting together the film clip for our next single 'Downtown Shutdown'… it’s a labor of love, and it has taken longer than we had hoped. Because we want you to feel the full force of the song with the visual alongside the record, we've decided to push HI VIZ to the new release date of June 1. We guarantee it’s worth the wait. X
