The Preatures Return With Retro-Cool New Single ‘Girlhood’

The Preatures are back with another stylishly vintage rock anthem dubbed ‘Girlhood’, which marks our first slice of their forthcoming second album.

Lyrically, the Sydney gang’s new choon deals with “the contradictions of modern womanhood”, referencing Carrie Brownstein from Sleater-Kinney’s memoir Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl — a brutally honest tale of navigating the music biz as a female artist. But musically, it harks back to classic rock royals like Divinyls, The Pretenders and The Angels.

“I can only speak of my own experiences, I’m not trying to speak for other women,” says frontwoman Izzi Manfredi. “This song is about exploring the contradictions of my own identity.”
