Aussie party starting legends, The Presets, have cemented their triumphant return to dancefloors around the country with the new track ‘Downtown Shutdown’.
The song takes a turn for the funkier, with the pair embracing a chorale of gospel-style vocals fit over a bass-driven groove, with the accompanying video culminating in a flurry of vivid visuals.
Check it out below:
The Preset’s new album HI VIZ, is set for a release on June 1st, featuring previously released tracks ‘Do What You Want’ and ’14U+14ME’, now with ‘Downtown Shutdown’ joining the ranks of epic singles.
“All the songs on HI VIZ are outward looking so in that respect it’s much more like our earlier stuff. It’s about trying to capture that energy you get on a great night out with your friends when you get to leave everything else behind you for a while. We essentially tried to create the soundtrack to a party that we would want to go nuts at” said the pair about the new album.
They’ll be heading out on tour, playing massive venues across the country, with the jaunt kicking off this June in Perth and wrapping up with a special performance in Mackay for the River Sessions festival.
