The Preatures (Live)
From the sultry swagger of ‘Whatever You Want’ to the juicy licks of ‘Ordinary’, through the hedonism of ‘Rock And Roll Rave’… it’s an exhilarating combination of Rock & Roll and Soul, at the centre of which beats a heart of brash, joyous pop.
With two acclaimed EPs to their name, the band finally bunkered down to record their long-awaited LP amidst a heavy international touring schedule. As luck would have it, their first pick for producer Jim Eno (best known as the drummer of Texas rockers Spoon) was available, so they packed a suitcase of half-formed songs and headed to his Public Hi Fi studio in Austin.
With Jack and Jim sharing the production, the three-week sessions were busy and fruitful. The band worked through songs during the weeks, jetting off on the weekends to play shows. Working songs in the studio, then road testing them live at career defining shows at South By Southwest and Coachella.
With time at Public Hi-Fi running out all too soon, the band came home to their Sydney studio ‘Doldrums’ in Surry Hills to finish the job and “add the sparkle”.
The late nights and last minute takes have paid off in full. Short, sharp and punchy: Blue Planet Eyes shows a band boldly evolving and reveling in their newfound freedom and vitality.
