Rewinding well before the release of their new album HI VIZ and back to 2012, The Presets were gearing up for the release of their third studio album, Pacifica, and right off the bat we all knew we were in for something special when they shared Youth in Trouble.
The first cut from the album, Youth In Trouble was released on June 29 – almost 7 years ago to the day – and set the benchmark for what Pacifica was building up to be.
Reaching no. 13 on the ARIA Charts at the time, the track was no easy listening, electro pop. As one of their more hard-hitting, club-driven tracks, Youth in Trouble is not so much a focus on Julian’s familiar vocals but more so a production flex, with one of the most intense breakdowns we’ve heard from the group across their whole catalogue.
Relive Youth In Trouble below and enjoy.
