Whoah! Last night I went to see The Presets and they were awesome!

I’ve liked them ever since I heard ‘Are You The One?’ off their debut album and 2008’s newie, ‘Apocalypto’ is even poppier. It’s a raw, chunky slice of electropop, fusing classic synthpop with a completely modern dance imperative.

And live they’re even better! It was so lovely to see an electro gig like this in Derby and so many fans come out and just jump about like lunatics. Derby is normally quite rock and quite apathetic, this was as unlike that as possible. The Presets rocked the crowd but we still demanded an encore! If you get the chance to go and see them, do not miss out.

Props also to Micachu who were so good I had to buy their record.

Ahhh, what a great night out! 🙂
