The Presets On Tour

Australian-based duo Kimberley Moyes and Julian Hamilton, aka The Presets, descended on the world last year with their album Beams, a release full of catchy keyboard melodies, hip-swinging percussion, and a taste for the unpredictable.

They'll hit several cities nationwide during the month of September, with more shows planned for October. Stay tuned for further details on the latter.
