The Preatures “Is This How You Feel?”

preatures

The Preatures out of Sydney, Australia came on my radar again after seeing their name on the list of SXSW artists. When I was first introduced to this song, I looped it about a hundred times that day, as I am wont to do in the obsessive stage of hearing something I like for the first time. Today I have been doing the same. Sent the song over to my mother, who noted the Prince influence. Spot on, mom. You can practically hear the ghost of Sheena Easton lurking in the mix. I’d been thinking Fleetwood Mac. It’s so freaking breezy in sound and mood, the light bass line just bounces while the vocals stay silky smooth.
