Sydney five piece The Preatures have released their new track ‘Revelation’, taken from their upcoming EP out later this year. There are so many things to like about this song. It’s a smooth track packed with spacious harmonies and a wonderful chorus rhythm. Slide guitar and echo laden percussion compliment the wistful lyrics and passionate vocals. Singer Isabella Manfredi carries her voice effortlessly, as the band weaves around her melodies to create a beautiful and heartfelt song.
‘Revelation’ follows the success of the previous release ‘Is This How You Feel?” a very retro sounding track with a video to match. The band’s soulful sound makes you feel sad that you missed the seventies. The band have really honed their sound, and I’m looking forward to seeing how they channeled that creativity on their next EP. ‘Revelation’ is promised as “only a taste” of what’s to come.
The Preatures made their way to Brisbane’s Valley Fiesta last year, and brought a sold out show here earlier this month. If you missed them, don’t worry: with songs this good, it won’t be long before they’ll be back again. Have a listen to more of their goodies on their JJJ Unearthed page, where Gideon Benson takes the vocal reins.
