The Presets


Following their sold-out HI VIZ Australian tour + headlining set at Splendour in the Grass 2018, and right before their tour of the US and Canada, comes the latest single and video offering from The Presets, “Martini”.

Julian Hamilton enthuses, “Martini was a dancer I used to know. She was everything I wasn’t – cool, clear, strong, and with a razor sharp edge I found impossible to resist. In the end, she left me completely undone; a crumbled wreck of a man. “But was it worth it?” I hear you ask … Every second.

“Each time we perform this song I think of her, so it made sense that Martini’s accompanying video is a film of us playing the song live, directed by our new favourite director and….  well hell I’ll just come out and say it… our new favourite person in the entire world SPOD.”

Director Spod says, “James Bond.  Dean Martin.  The Presets.  All big ‘Tini fans.  What is it about the ‘Tini that gets guys so vibed?  The fun glass? The crystal like clarity? The icy cold gin? The kiss of vermouth? Or that big yummy olive!  It’s fun to think about, so when The Presets gave me the call to make this documentary of them giving a keynote performance at ‘Tini Time Expo at Melbourne’s ’The Forum’, I couldn’t say no.  Such is the allure of the ‘Tini.  I want to know it’s secrets, what makes it tick, what its dreams are.  Did I discover the meaning of life thru an icy cold ‘Tini? Well, I hope my works speaks for itself and you find some answers and enjoyment in my latest film ‘Tini Time with The Presets’.  All the best, Spod xoxo”
