Presets - Do What You Want

FIRST OFF, I want to express my utter appallment toward myself because… Confession time: I didn’t know THE PRESETS were back! C’mon guys. When something like the Presets releasing new music happens, y’all gotta phone me. Conference call me, send me a letter.

But now that we are all on the same page again, AKA back in 2008 (MGMT has new music out too, so High School Me is rejoicing), I want you to brace yourself for a zany time. “Do What You Want,” the Presets’ new single, now has an accompanying visual and you’ll probably think someone slipped you a tab of acid or something. Check it out below.

 

THE PRESETS - DO WHAT YOU WANT

soundcloud “Do What You Want” is an upbeat retro-sounding and synthy anthem -- so basically, a Presets track very much of the norm.

The duo has always had a flair for a kookier kind of electronic sound though, and the video leaves a similar impression. Like, I know my job over here is to tell you guys what’s up with this video. But that’s the thing. I don’t know. There’s a guy having fun with some battle ropes; another guy singing via an Ugly Face Snapchat Lens; a bunch of eye makeup, and um, just a bunch of other crap. It’s wild. But I expect nothing less from the Presets. Awww right.

Watch it and be enlightened. The Presets are expected to release a new album (their first in more than four years) in early 2018. Next year is looking brighter already.
