Bold yet fragile, courageous and vulnerable, and direct but deep, The Preatures forthcoming album GIRLHOOD explores the contradictions of being a modern woman. The follow-up to 2014 hit album BLUE PLANET EYES sees singer Izzi put herself front and centre, turning different stages of her life into 11 soul-searching sonic gems.
Five years ago, the band moved into a dingy rehearsal space in Sydney’s Surry Hills and set about transforming it into a recording studio they named Doldrums. It was here where they developed their sound, recorded 2013’s IS THIS HOW YOU FEEL? EP, and for the past 18 months, recorded and produced the GIRLHOOD LP. Their initial plan to carry the momentum from the success of BLUE PLANET EYES into a month-long burst of recording turned into a year and a half of creativity and refinement.
Led by guitarist and producer Jack Moffitt and driven by rhythm section of Thomas Champion on bass and drummer Luke Davison, the band surrendered to the longer process. Jack recorded and produced the sessions, getting some initial help from Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, Olympia, DMA’s) and ARIA Award-winning engineer Eric J. Dubowsky (Flume, Nick Murphy).
GIRLHOOD was given a final polish in Los Angeles by mixing engineer Bob Clearmountain, an industry legend for his work with David Bowie and Bruce Springsteen as well as Aussie icons INXS, Divinyls and the Church.
Their debut album BLUE PLANET EYES received critical acclaim across the globe and debuted #4 on the ARIA Album Chart. The band were nominated for 3 ARIA Awards in 2015 for Best Live Act, Best Group and Best Rock Album and won GQ’s Band of The Year Award.
