The Presets return with Pacifica
People will try and tell you they don't get nervous before interviews but that's BS. I was sweating bullets before The Presets came in.
Having followed them from their EP Blow Up
through to Beams (
my favourite) and then Apocalypso
and been to see them perform more times than I can remember, you can understand why I was nervous/excited.
Anyway, Jules and Kim came in the studio to take us through this album Pacifica
and they didn't hold back with the details. The boys were extremely honest and open about their songs, the success of Apocalypso
and of course "the best day of everyone's lives".
Don't know what that is? Well, you're probably too young or too old but it was when The Presets played with Cut Copy, Van She, Muscles and DAFT PUNK!
That was a very special time for the boys (and me).
Have a look here.
Anyway, that was a very long time ago. The boys are back though to take us track by track through their new album Pacifica
four years in the making. Here's where they talk about releasing "Ghosts" and the initial response... bloody internet critics!
Now here's the extended part of our interview with Kim & Julian where they talk specifically about the meaning of some tracks and how they cam together.... it's really long, but we were so riveted by the pair, in respect for them I left most of the chat in. Check it out...
