I saw this video for The Presets – If I Know You – on Logo’s New Now Next, a place where I see a lot of new videos. Although the production isn’t super glossy and they use that over-used, cars speeding on the freeway in LA scene in this video, I think it’s one that worth watching.

The Presets are an Australian dance duo that started putting out music in 2005. They’ve put out 2 albums, Beams in 2005 and Apocolypso in 2008 and have had huge chart success in Australia and have done quite well on the dance charts in the U.S.

There’s something so oddly lonely yet compelling about these skinny, geeky kids dancing in various LA streets with this melancholic music in the background. It’s almost like the song is a voyeur spying on them. It has a very 80’s feel to it. I loved it immediately and hope you do too.

Here’s the video for The Presets “If I Know You” and the lyrics are below it.

Here are the lyrics:

Clever liar, foolin’ us all
Never thought I’d work it out
How could I have known it was ever about you boy?
Now there’s nothin’ to say, cos there’s no words
And we’re not talkin’ anyhow
You must have known I was never to doubt you boy

If it was so fine, it was so good
Oh you’re unbelievable
All this time I’ve been living without you boy
But not your lyin’
It felt so good, the world don’t know
Now they’ll never find out
How all these years she must’ve been beside you boy
Don’t forget that I

Was the one that you found
And if I know you
You’ll find me someplace new
I hope I never, I hope I never have to
We’re a waste of time
And if I know you, learned long ago it’s true
I hope I never, I hope I never have to

Go and explain, explain it again, boy that this all started
Found you lying in the arms of another girl
So stop your crying
Day after day, year after year
Far too long it lasted
You must have thought I was nothing without you boy
Don’t forget that I

Was the one that you found
And if I know you
You’ll find me someplace new
I hope I never, I hope I never have to
We’re a waste of time
And if I know you, learned long ago it’s true
I hope I never, I hope I never have to

And tonight, if we learn that the world’s on fire
I guess I’ll turn to you
I hope I never, I hope I never have to

I fail to find
So hard to find
And I can’t find a way for you and I to go far…(?)

I’m always learning things the hard, hard, hardest way.

Cos I was the one, that you found
And if I know you, you’ll find me someplace new
I hope you never, I hope you never get to

Tonight, if we learn that the world’s on fire
I guess I’ll turn to you
I hope I never, I hope I never have to
