The Presets recently let loose their first new song in some four years – Do What You Want – and now they have a video to prove it!
Dircted by Kris Moyes, the same guy who did the clips for My People and Are You the One?, it’s certainly a feast for the senses – and one heck of a storming party track.
“Kris Moyes directed two of our all-time favorite Presets videos for Are You the One? and My People, so it seemed natural to go back and ask him to throw something together for our new song Do What You Want,” Julian Preset says. “Naturally, he did not disappoint. A mind-melting, flashback inducing glory hole of dreams, screams and a whole lotta cream. Now our pleasure is your pleasure. Please consider.”
The director also wasn’t short on words when describing his glorious new work.
“If the music video we made for Are You the One? was a newborn child, the music video for Do What You Want is the troubled teen,” Moyes begins. “It’s a turbocharged mental meltdown, a visual tantrum, albeit super silly and fun, of course! From the very first conversation we were all on the same page about wanting to make something cool and to remind fans and friends of why we all love The Presets. Like all our work, this one comes from the heart. I hope you love it as much as we loved making it.”
In other news, The Presets will play a handful of shows before 2017 waves goodbye, including Hot Dub Wine Machine this Saturday in McLaren Vale, SA, The Warehouse Collective on December 16 in Sydney and New Years at Beyond the Valley in Lardner Park, Victoria. Click here for all tickets.
