Today The Presets revealed their new single “Ghosts”, from their forthcoming album Pacifica (out digitally on September 10 and in stores the 11th via Casablanca). The single will be available on iTunes August 21. Stream the track and watch the sunrise here!
After the “face-melting techno” of the street track “Youth in Trouble”, “Ghosts” represents a sublime and adventurous musical turn for The Presets.
Minor-keyed Merengue grooves are topped with First Fleet melodies, while synth washes and skittering beats glide effortlessly across the track’s rollicking, undulating peaks and valleys.
“When Julian played me his initial sketch of this song it utterly blew my mind, “ explains Kim. “Taking a classic folk style, sea shanty and adding it to an up tempo techno groove was just genius to my ears.”
The Presets recently released the video for Pacifica track “Youth in Trouble”. Watch the kaleidoscopic pixilated roller coaster, created by New York based visual artist Yoshi Sodeoka, here. The single and remix package for “Youth In Trouble” are available now on iTunes.
