XLR8R's SXSW Artist Preview: The Presets
Australian indie dance inducers Julian Hamilton and Kimberley Moyes (a.k.a. The Presets) caused a stir on the net more than a year before they had proper releases on the market, but when their full-length, Beams, dropped on Modular in 2006, the duo made sure listeners got more than those few leaked tracks. Notable gems from the record include the synthy stomp of "Are You the One" and the smooth staccato blipping "The Girl and the Sea." A perfect fit for their young label, Hamilton and Moyes are dancing through various Grammy nominations and appearances around the world, and working on another album as we speak.
The Presets will be playing the following shows at this year's SXSW:
Thursday, March 15
Beauty Bar, 617 E 7th Street, Austin
Additional Music By Shit Disco, Matt & Kim, Foreign Islands, and more.
