Artist: The Presets
Released in 2008 as The Presets’ second album, Apocalypso is exactly what you would expect from a synthpop album.
I don’t know what it is about the style, but a grown man whining about relationships is actually quite forgivable when underpinned by this electronic squelch.
I like the Australian duo, and especially their wide range of synth-scapes and tempos, but at the same time I do feel a little disappointed by how, despite it all, it does start to sound a bit samey after a few tracks.
If you can’t stand the heat, get out of Australia!
