History

Champion and Moffitt were high school friends who met Manfredi at the Australian Institute of Music in 2008. They formed a band together and in 2010 added former member Gideon Bensen and Luke Davison under the name The Preachers.[2]

In 2012, they changed the spelling of their name to The Preatures to avoid legal complications with other bands with similar names, signed with Mercury Records and released the EP Shaking Hands. [3] The EP featured the single "Take a Card", written by Manfredi with Bensen on lead vocals. It was featured on Triple J Unearthed.[4]

In 2013, they released a second EP, Is This How You Feel? featuring two singles, "Is This How You Feel?" and "Manic Baby". The single "Is This How You Feel?" attracted considerable success, winning the $50,000 Vanda & Young prize, being nominated for an ARIA Award for Best Pop Release,[5] and being voted ninth in the prestigious Triple J Hottest 100.[6]

Blue Planet Eyes, their debut studio album, was released on 30 September 2014,[7] which peaked at No. 4 on the ARIA Albums Chart.[8] At the ARIA Music Awards of 2015 the group were nominated in three categories.[5]

Gideon Bensen left the band on good terms in March 2016.[9]

Music

The Preatures style is classic pop/rock with modern influences. Citing The Beatles, The Divinyls and The Pretenders as major influences, the band centres around Manfredi's songwriting and iconic performance style. The band is also known for their DIY production. Guitarist Jack Moffitt produced and mixed their breakout hit 'Is This How You Feel' and co-produced Blue Planet Eyes.
