Sydney outfit The Preatures may have only released their debut album Blue Planet Eyes a few months ago, but they’ve already started work on their second full length and plan on premiering some of that new material during their Vivid LIVE set this May.
Speaking to triple j this afternoon while co-hosting the Drive show, singer Isabella Manfredi revealed the band’s plan to preview new songs for their hometown fans when they play at the Sydney Opera House on Wednesday 27th May for Vivid LIVE.
“I think we’ll definitely play some new stuff for Vivid,” she said. “That’s a 90 minute set and our record goes for 35 minutes so that probably gives you an indication…,” she added.
Manfredi and guitarist Jack Moffitt also confirmed the band have already recorded some demos, possibly for the second album, while on tour in the UK and are “at the point where we’re thinking about what we’re going to do next”.
“There’s a bunch of good stuff I think we’ve got sitting around that we’re just waiting to work on,” said Moffitt. “We’ll finish up with Groovin [The Moo] and then we’ll sit down in the studio for as long as we’ve got.”
“I think people were quite surprised when we said we were going to start work on the next record, because to most people we’ve just released Blue Planet Eyes and it’s only been out for six months or so,” added Manfredi.
“But for us we had three weeks to write it and another three to record it. So it’s kind of a blip in our lives and it’s been a while for us, so we’re very anxious to get started on the next stuff.”
We’ve also yet to hear more about that that teased collaboration between Manfredi, Moffit and members of Flight Facilities and Jagwar Ma, after Flight Facilities’ Jimmy Lyell, confirmed that the Aussie musos had been working together in the studio on a possible standalone single. You better believe we’ll be keeping you in the loop with news on that.
In the meantime, The Preatures will play at Groovin The Moo this weekend and next, will take the stage for Vivid Live in May. They also have appearances scheduled at Darwin’s BASSINTHEGRASS festival and Hobart’s Dark Mofo, meaning there’s many more opportunities this year for the rest of the country to hear what The Preatures are plannig for LP 2.
