The Preatures: “Better Than It Ever Could Be”
Sydney rock quintet The Preatures are poised for a big 2014. Their debut single “Is This How You Feel?” and EP of the same name caught a lot of buzz last year, and now the group starts off the first quarter with another great track, “Better Than It Ever Could Be.” Where “Is This How You Feel” had a ’70s MOR vibe, “Better Than It Ever Could Be” takes on the ’80s. Isabella Manfredi shows off her mix of Blondie and Joan Jett vocals with pop-ready hooks over the ’80s rock riffs. The music video is presented as a performance on an ’80s public access channel and features the band playing with cheesy editing effects and old-school video game graphics. With their debut full-length album coming out later this year, “Better Than It Ever Could Be” is just the tip of the iceberg for what The Preatures have in store for 2014.
The song will officially be released on March 23rd, but be sure to grab the Is This How You Feel? EP if you haven’t done so already.
