Stream: The Preatures, “Better Than It Ever Could Be”

Premiere: Sydney five-piece The Preatures’ single turns up the volume, drops the boy/girl stuff and focuses on singer Isabella Manfredi’s needs-no-help howl.

January 28, 2014


On The Preatures' first hit, "Is This How You Feel?," the Sydney five-piece showcased a Fleetwood-y sound to cockily rock your hips to. Their new single, "Better Than It Ever Could Be," turns up the volume a bit—the mood's more "throw me in the air" than "pull me close"—and drops the summer-lovin' boy/girl vocals to forefront singer Isabella Manfredi's needs-no-help howl. The band will loop around Europe next month, then swing stateside for SXSW and Coachella. Their two-track "Better Than It Ever Could Be" single comes out March 23rd in Europe and February 11th in the US via Harvest.
