This upbeat, narrative toe-tapper is the perfect match for a dangerous love: it is daring, unapologetic, and impatient.

Picture This is the top-selling Irish act in both 2017 and 2018, and is the nation’s hottest musical export in decades. They arrived as a fully-formed indie-rock phenomenon with their self-titled full-length debut which was certified triple-platinum in Ireland: "Picture This" held the #1 spot overall in the country for four weeks, while topping the Streaming Chart for seven weeks.

This summer marked their first stadium tour in Ireland, which capped off with a 35,000-person stadium show that sold out over 3 months in advance. New single "Troublemaker" is a song 'about a love that seems doomed and volatile, but has so much spark and excitement that you just can’t seem to let it go.' The indie rock vibe here combines a simple bass line with a mix of electronic drums and rhythmic guitar lines, and delivers an anthem for the enduring complexity of true connection. This upbeat, narrative toe-tapper is the perfect match for a dangerous love: it is daring, unapologetic, and impatient.

This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.

And wait
She's in our diner and he's sitting there beside her
And he's filling up her plate
No way
And now she's crying 'cause he's lying on the floor
After I punched him in his face
Man, hey
Now I've got some stuff to do around town
But right now all of that stuff can fuckin' wait
