The Preatures had a relatively quiet 2016. Having dropped their last single I Know A Girl back in August, we’re hoping that their new album, the follow-up to 2014’s stellar debut Blue Planet Eyes, will soon be upon us – considering they recently had to pull out of March festival Party in The Park due to “commitments finishing and mixing this record,” we’re pretty hopeful. The group, who last year farewelled guitarist Gideon Benson, have kicked off 2017 with a couple live dates. Last week they headlined the University of Sydney’s O Week festival, playing at The Manning Bar on Thursday, March 2. Joining The Preatures was the wonderful Ngaiire on support, who released one of our favourite albums of 2016 in Blastoma.
