After the success of Sydney duo The Presets’ 2008 release Apocalypso, it would’ve been easy to keep the ball rolling while on such a high. But amidst the unexpected rise to fame came another challenge for both Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes: parenthood.

The Range spoke to drummer Moyes from Canberra, where the group were preparing for an Australia Day concert, and found out about some of the more sinister yet optimistic themes gathered in Pacifica, and how these might translate to the band’s new live show.
