Aussie rockers The Preatures have nothing but love for the Great Lakes area and the Grow Your Own festival.
So much so, the band changed their Twitter cover photo to the poster for the festival for a period of time.
Performing at the festival curated by close friend Holly Rankin, guitarist Jack Moffittsaid the band is ready to rock.
“We’re looking forward to it, we’re really keen,” guitarist Jack Moffitt said.
“It’s great to be a part of something special.”
For those who haven’t heard The Preatures before, Jack said to be prepared for a great show at Grow Your Own.
“It’s lots of fun, high energy and pretty raucous,” Jack said.
Performing in regional areas is nothing new to the self professed city slickers.
The band is coming off a hectic regional tour in support of their album Girlhood.
“We’ve been around this big, brown land playing 40 regional shows in three and a half months,” Jack said.
The band has also performed numerous times in the Hunter Valley.
Their single Yanada compelled listeners when it dropped in 2017 for its connection and promotion of Aboriginality.
This coincided with a campaign to raise funds for the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies.
Other songs that have delighted audiences this decade include I Know A Girl, Somebody’s Talking and their breakout single Is This How You Feel?
Jack said the band has infused “a cross-section of genres and artists” to build their sound, taking influence from Aretha Franklin, Patsy Cline and the Motown era.
As a guitarist, Jack has taken influence from British rock and roll and punk groups from the 1970s.
We can once again expect great things out of the band in 2019, with plans to get back in the studio and plan a new record.
