The Presets


This Boy’s In Love

Modular Records must be high-fiving themselves into next week. After Cut Copy upped their game by 800 per cent, Modular’s second Australian Number One album in a month came courtesy of this lot. It’s not hard to see why when all those silvery cinders of synth spark in the background while Julian Hamilton simultaneously channels every band who’ve sailed in Depeche Mode’s wake (including Erasure). All hail Oz’s second wave of new rave.
