The Presets "Are You the One”

Following in the footsteps of Modular label-mates Cut Copy, this Sydney-based duo unabashedly and refreshingly celebrate the hedonistic side of club music. Meshing a dirty disco beat with a menacing synth line, this new single from their Beams album isn’t exactly innovative, but with such self-deprecating, oddball humour, it’s hard not to fall for their art damaged, ’80s pastiche. The curious can check them out live when they open up for Ladytron in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver this month. ( 03/preset/ayto/ayto.htm)
