History[edit] The Presets' founders, Julian Hamilton
Julian Hamilton
and Kim Moyes met in 1995 at the Sydney
Sydney
Conservatorium of Music where they were both studying classical music.[7][8] They shared an interest in 1980s pop music and became members of the Sydney-based electronic group, Prop, with Jeremy Barnett on marimbas, Hamilton on keyboards, Moyes on vibraphone, David Symes on bass guitar and Jared Underwood on drums. This group released two albums, Small Craft, Rough Sea in 2001 and Cook Cut Damage Destroy in 2003. Hamilton and Moyes broke off from Prop when they remixed a track, "Magnetic Highway", with "harder electronic edges" under the name The Presets.[7][9] 2003–2004: Early EPs[edit] The Presets
The Presets
formed in Sydney

in 2003 with Hamilton on vocals, keyboards and production and Moyes on drums, keyboards, production and programming.[7] The band recorded a demo which drew the attention of Modular Records. They signed with the label and released a seven-track extended play, Blow Up, in November.[9][10] Daniel Johns
Daniel Johns
(Silverchair) provided guitar work and co-wrote the track, "Cookie" with the duo.[7] The EP was favourably compared to work by Depeche Mode, Soft Cell

and Cabaret Voltaire.[9] The Presets

supported the EP with gigs in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane; and issued a 10" single, "Beat On / Beat Off", on Rex Records.[9] In November 2004, as a follow up, a second EP was issued, the five-track Girl and the Sea. Its title track was eventually featured on The O.C.

– the United States teen drama TV series in March 2006.[7] Tim Colman of The Sydney
Sydney
Morning Herald described them as having "successfully fused pop, techno, electro and rock. They've even stripped the live rig down to drums, keyboards, microphones and an iPod."[11] In the same month the duo ventured out on their first interstate shows, performing as part of a Modular Records night which also featured Cut Copy, Colder, and BRAINS (The Avalanches in DJ Mode).[12] 2005–2006: Beams[edit]

The Presets
was their 2007 Big Day Out Shows. Playing the penultimate slot in the Boiler Room saw the band play to their biggest audiences to date. inthemix described their set as "Pure class! The Presets
The Presets
well and truly earned their promotion up the timetable from last years early afternoon scorcher. The Aussie duo have only improved from a further 12 months of relentless touring and performed with the charisma of seasoned pros."[20] March saw a quick visit to North America with a handful of club dates and appearances at SXSW

Music Festival and Miami Winter Music Festival. In April 2007, the Presets released another single only distributed in the UK, "Truth & Lies", which featured two songs and originally appeared as a B-side to "Are You The One?" in Australia.[21] Around the same time the band spent a few weeks at a farm just outside Bryon Bay, where they began work on what would become their second album. In the middle of the year the band relocated to Berlin for several months. During this time they played across Europe on the festival circuit, including Benicàssim

Overseas, "My People" kickstarted a renewed interest in the band, becoming The Guardian's Pick of the Week, who likened the song to "the brutality of Aussie rules football [...] in a good way, obviously."[23] 2008[edit] Apocalypso was issued on 12 April 2008, which debuted at number-one on the ARIA Albums Chart and remained in the top 50 for 63 weeks.[24] It achieved the iTunes number-one spot for several weeks.[25] By 2009 it was certified triple platinum (shipment of 210,000 units) in Australia.[26][27] The Guardian
