With hype slowly increasing around a new album from The Presets, the Aussie electro lords have spilled a handful of beans about how their next record will sound.
Speaking with Glam Adelaide, The Preset’s Julian Hamilton says the duo are currently preparing to release new tunes, which have a distinctly ‘party’ vibe.
“It’s definitely trying to channel the party, I think we are at that stage where we just wanna settle down and make some good old-fashioned party music, getting back to our roots, a bit wild and berserk,” Hamilton says.
It looks like the pair could be going a little “old school” too, with Hamilton explaining that he and his bandmate Kim Moyes aren’t taking too much influence from more contemporary acts these days.
“We listen to the music of the day and that informs us of what we don’t want to do, not to be disrespectful as there is a lot of incredible music around, but what we’re not hearing a lot of these days is really fun, slamming, electronic club music on the radio,” he says.
Hamilton says creating The Presets’ new music has been “really fun”, and he thinks “it will be the best record we’ve ever made”.
Earlier this year, The Presets were spotted in a studio working with DZ Deathrays, but it’s still unclear if they recorded anything together. The pair released their latest album Pacifica back in 2012, and have released a handful of singles since then.
