Seems like every few days there’s word of a new band coming out of Australia, and from the looks of it, it appears Oz has become the new hotbed of musical activity the past few years.

This time it’s The Preatures, fronted by the luxuriant Isabella Manfredi. Hot on the trail of a cross-country U.S. tour (before heading over to Europe for Festival season starting in June), The Preatures have already gone down very well at SXSW this past March, including an appearance and a boost from the Jimmy Kimmel Show. This past weekend and this coming weekend they are playing at Coachella, and word has been good from their latest gig there.

Only together since 2011, The Preatures have scored well with audiences and critics alike. They are something of a departure from the current Aussie onslaught by way of Psych-meisters Jagwar Ma and Tame Impala. Opting instead for a more Indie/Rock sound, with Manfredi doing a good job in the belting department, they’re another promising entry in good things coming from Down Under.

And I’m already prone to liking them, since they cited two of my all-time favorite bands; The Saints and Split Enz as musical influences. Good one.

There are a lot of opportunities to catch them on this swing through the U.S., so try and grab tickets while you can. They also have a new ep out now (Is This How You Feel?), so fall by their site and grab a copy.

In the meantime, here’s a little something to tide you over.
