The Presets – If I know you (album: Apocalypso 2009)

This song is by the awesome Aussie band The Presets. This is one of the most amazing albums I have ever listened to. I couldn’t find even one song that I didn’t like in this album!!! 3 years ago they were playing at Bondi Beach for New Year’s Eve Party. I went with my hubby and a friend and we had such a great time. One of the best parties I’ve ever been to.
When I first heard the lyrics of this song I thought it’s a bit weird since it’s a guy’s voice singing about a breakup from another guy, then I realize they wanted to write it from a woman perspective but it’s just a man’s voice singing it. It’s quite an angry song and only a man’s voice can really express this anger, a woman’s voice would be too soft and it would be just another breakup song. Quite artistic! It’s a song for all liars and cheaters out there that think they can get away with everything. you are wrong and so stupid!

What’s this song about?
Discussing the lyrics, singer Julian Hamilton told Rolling Stone Australia: "It’s a break up song but I didn’t want it to be a guy pissed off at a girl because that always sounds so wimpy. I thought it'd be cool to write it from a girl's perspective. The lyrics came out a bit weird and we thought maybe we could flog this off to a girl singer, but then I thought no, this song needs to be sung with balls!"(Wikipedia – If I know you)
