Video of the Moment #2374: The Preatures

I’m looking forward to my trip down under in September for BigSound (the Aussie equivalent to SXSW), and I’m looking to soak up as much Aussie music and tips before I get there. Technically, The Preatures are not new to me: I saw them as part of a Universal Music showcase during the inaugural ARIA week in 2012 on my birthday. The Sydney group will be releasing their second album ‘Girlhood’ on the 11th of August on Harvest Records, and they’ve previewed the upcoming long player with the title track single. Its purpose, according to the press release, is to “explore[s] the contradictions of being a modern woman” and naturally, singer Isabella “Izzi” Manfredi makes a good spokesperson on this point. It’s a hard-driving rocker with moments of all-out singalongs, and it couldn’t have been released to the wild at a better time. (In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve been doing out part in feminism in music through the programming through the last two SXSWs and hope to continue this.) Watch the video for ‘Girlhood’ below.
