“Youth In Trouble” is the first taste of new music to come from The Presets in over four years. The track is a never-ending, undulating slice of face-melting techno. Their new album, Pacifica, is due out in September on Casablanca. After several teasers, the band has also premiered of the full video for “Youth In Trouble”, a crazy kaleidoscopic pixilated rollercoaster created by New York based visual artist Yoshi Sodeoka.
The Presets are also releasing remixes of “Youth In Trouble” by Green Velvet, Alex Metric, plus The Finger Prince & Light Year. Featuring ten prismatic, synth-laced songs, Pacifica sees The Presets boldly venture into new, uncharted musical territories. Traversing both light and shade in energy and emotion, the album was produced by the band – Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes – and mixed in Los Angeles with Tony Hoffer.
