WATCH: The Preatures ‘Manic Baby’ (Official Video)

manic baby

August 9 marks the release of Sydney-rockers THE PREATURES new EP Is This How You Feel? and the track listing could not be better. With the catchy title track taking the first slot, it’s a lovely introduction to the EP that shows us exactly what we love about the band.

The second track on the EP is ‘Manic Baby’ and it features heavy bass that thumps just enough to keep everybody nodding their heads behind their cool-ass shades.

The official music video for the single has just been thrust upon the world, and it’s nostalgic themes are reminiscent of THE STROKES’ video for ‘Last Nite’, only featuring a few more dancing girls.

The mix of nostalgia and 2013 aesthetic in this clip makes it that much more unique. The dancers are all dressed in clothes we would probably wear today – if we were really big fashion people- and the set is quite clean with the white blocks and black furniture.

Is This How You Feel? is out now on iTunes, make sure you catch THE PREATURES as they venture on their national tour to celebrate the EP’s release.

The tour is all through September and THE PREATURES are planning on travelling to many, many cities so get your tickets quick as they are selling fast. Their first show is Brisbane has already sold out, leading another show to be booked (lucky things) and Melbourne isn’t too far from being in the same position.
