Sorry, no upcoming events found at this time.
The Presets are a twosome, innovative Aussies who, while creating a musical path that wouldn't be unfamiliar to acts like Daft Punk, Nine Inch Nails, and the Faint, don't mind hauling disco along for the ride. Julian Hamilton who handles the production, keyboards, vocals and Kimberley Moyes who looks after production, drums, programming came across each other, in the beginning of the '90s as students at Sydney's Conservatorium of Music. Both the boys were pursuing classical music, but as they examined and plunged into the works of the great composers, neither could forget an additional love of '80s pop: the Smiths, Pet Shop Boys, and New Order. The duo bonded over their love for lighter music and started writing music at school by day and dancing to acid house by night. Finally, the duo became a member of the band 'Prop' and released many experimental instrumental music albums that garnered critical approval all over Australia. Eventually, the duo wanted to remix a track with harder electronic edges and they did so under the nickname Presets.

In 2003 the duo released a demo and were immediately signed by the leading Aussie label 'Modular'. The band came out with their maiden EP 'Blow Up' which showcased the guitar work of Silverchair's Daniel Johns in 2003. A year later the band came out with yet another EP 'Girl and the Sea'. The main track from the EP was used on the TV show The O.C. In 2005 the band released yet another EP 'Down Down Down', which garnered interest in Europe too. The same year, the band came out with their full-length album 'Beams', which was well accepted by the band's fans.
